A Walk for Life

Here’s a news story to kick this category off that’s rather fun.

This Japanese gentleman, Mr Uchida, is off on an  adventure, testing a new application of technology to help people with paralysis to regain mobility.  

I like this type of “exoskeleton” not only because it imitates the natural world, but is also a development of technology used to move elderly patients in hospitals.

And Mr Uchida’s destination is almost spiritual, an example of how the human spirit strive for higher things.

This is the type of technological evolution that brings hope to those who might otherwise consider their options in life as rather limited, just as long as these developments are not prohibitively costly, and doesn’t extend people’s capabilities unnaturally
