Bionics: Merging Man and Machine -- April 15th

Join Cal Poly Science Café on April 15th, 2011, 3:30 p.m. (refreshments and informal conversation begin at 3 p.m.)

Featured Speaker: Alumnus Russ Angold (BRAE '00) Berkeley Bionics co-founder/Chief Technical Officer (In photo, credit Berkeley Bionics, wearing HULC)

Technology has reached a point where we can now effectively merge man and machine. We call these Bionic devices Exoskeletons and have designed devices to help augment a soldier's ability (HULC) as well as a device that allows paraplegics to standup and walk again (eLEGS).

What will be the future implication of these Bionic suits? How will they integrate into everyday life?
