The Google--JnJ joint venture inspired a lot of net artists. Here are some great examples!
In the mean time, some further details about the deal:
"Johnson & Johnson already works with Intuitive Surgical on components for the da Vinci system, and says it will continue to do so, but the Google partnership will be for an entirely different hardware-and-software product. A spokesperson says the company hopes the new system will be more cost-effective for hospitals in developing nations, and that it’ll have an interface that improves a surgeon’s access to information during a procedure."
Wired, Google :)
