Friday, April 15th at 3pm. 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?
