Human Exoskeletons Video on TED.com

image Absolutely Amazing. Assistive human exoskeletons have been developed with applications for persons living with disabilities as well as the military.  While still a little bulky and a long way from the RoboCop suit from the 1980s, this technology has vast implications for the future of assistive technologies in the work and lives of our kids.

Take a few moments to watch the video below. Near the end of the video, you’ll see a woman who has been paralyzed for nearly 2 decades walk across the stage with less than 12 hours of practice using this new technology. 

Then try to keep a dry eye and tell me that there’s no reason to teach robotics concepts in your school.
