Ewout Arkenbout, BITE-alumnus, was interviewed by BNR Dutch News Radio about his PhD-research on multi-branched surgical instrumentation, explaining his new “hands-off” design methodology to gain insight in intuitive interfaces for manual steering without constructing prototypes in hardware.

Commercializing our squid-based steering technology, spin-off DEAM received an investment from the investment firm Carduso Capital in Groningen, the Netherlands. This will make it possible for DEAM to start-up the production phase, focusing on a market introduction second half of 2018.
In the television program “Het ei van Midas”, renowned Dutch biologist Midas Dekkers explores how ideas from Nature can inspire new technology. In this episode, he visited the BITE-group to learn more about our tentacle-like maneuverable instruments.
Renowned dutch biologist Midas Dekkers talks on Pauw about his new program “Het EI van Middas” that discusses nature-inspired technology, giving our octupus inspired steerable instruments as an example.
The Dutch TV-program “De Kennis van Nu” (“The Knowledge of Now”) has made a documentary about the research in the BITE-group, explaining how we use the anatomic architecture of cuttlefish tentacles as a source of inspiration for our research on maneuverable surgical devices.
