If you ever saw the movie Ironman, you will find this interesting.

Cyberdyne, a Japanese electronics company, has released a promotional video showing an elderly patient with Parkinson’s disease using a robotic skeleton to walk for the first time in two years. Of course, we have some skepticism and paranoia about robots which will have to be addressed (think iRobot), but the potential is significant. Here’s a picture of their HAL (Hybrid Assisted Limb) from their website. [Honestly, I would be fairly skeptical if this hadn’t appeared front page in the USA Today.]
