Seriously, I’d be ok with this. If stem cells can’t cure me in my lifetime, I’d have no beef in taking robotic technology instead. Potato, potatoe. So…do I look sexy or what?
Don’t know if you’re in the loop or not, but there’s been a lot of research happening this year in the robotic technology field (2008 is the Year of the Rat afterall, symbolizing activity, hard work, and renewal), giving hope to people with spinal cord injuries everywhere; providing real belief that being able to walk again will happen in their lifetime (with ReWalk being one of the companies that’s gotten the most attention).
Check this bad boy out (yet to be featured on this blog…I think): The HAL Exoskeleton Suit. Pretty rad, huh?
