A New World

Science marches on — what can I tell you, it’s the weekend and so I think more about technology.

Two things caught my eye: the ReWalk Exoskeleton — approved earlier by the European Union, has now been approved by the Federal Drug Association, and it lets paraplegics walk. It is not a seriously visible harness worn outside the clothing that permits walking.

And

A robot Valet at a German airport that parks your car.

You take a ticket ($40, please), and park in a specified slot. A machine that looks like an unworldly forklift, picks up your car and deposits it in a parking slot, to be returned when you return to the parking facility.
