Hello ATS!

I found this article and thought it might interest some of you. In a very short article on NBCNEWS, they are talking about a robot exoskeleton that is in use and available now for paraplegics.

“It will be incredible for me to regain independence, to use the system to walk and stand on my own,” said Derek Herrera, a Marine captain who’s getting one. “I see this as a milestone for people in my same situation who will now have access to this technology — to experience walking again, and all of the health benefits that come with ReWalking.” Studies show not only does the device help patients walk on their own, but they regain muscle strength, stamina and other benefits.

Will there be new types of sports developed as a result of this tech? What will this do for recreational activities? What about exploration? What will this do for war-fare? What does ATS think?

All I can think about is that Tom Cruise movie

Is this where this tech is headed?
