|Henry Evans with his PR2 robot|
If you have, ever have had, a loved one, or a friend with mobility problems due to illness like MS or a stroke or some other kind of state of paralysis you'll understand how the simple things, like being able to scratch your own nose can be greatly taken for granted by those of us who do not have mobility issues. It is easy to take your ability to walk, talk, feed yourself etc., for granted when your body and health are all intact.
Technology is changing things for people and I was excited to hear about Henry Evans who was the innovator of Robots for Humanity which involves assisted robotics. Henry Evans is an incredible human being, and a testament to the miraculous creative power of the human spirit.
