Walking into the Future

I recently delivered a keynote presentation to Care Providers of Minnesota–an association of aging services facilities. During my talk, I showed a snippet from this video of a parapalegic woman using a new robotic exoskeleton to walk. I suggested that in the not-to-distant future a number of people would altogether forego wheelchairs.

The future is moving so fast that even such exoskeletons might be obsolete within a few years. Here’s an interesting quote (from this article) from Saul Griffith, an inventor and recipient of a MacArthur “genius” fellowship:

“Within a few months we will make a pair of pants that a paraplegic will put on and can walk in.”
