robots for babies

Post from Jeffrey Winters:

Last year, Sunil K. Agrawal of the University of Delaware wrote an article for the magazine about his work building robots that help infants with mobility issues—specifically cerebral palsy—learn to move around and explore their world independently (see “Robots for Infants,” March 2011). The robots built by Agrawal and his colleague, Cole Galloway, were featured by the National Science Foundation at the annual USA Science & Engineering Festival at the Washington Convention Center this past weekend—ASME was there too, with its well-traveled “Heroes of Engineering” exhibit.

The University of Delaware recently produced a short video about Agrawal and Galloway’s work. Although it certainly doesn’t go into as much detail about the status and prospects of the project, it is almost infinitely cuter.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Many thanks!

    s why all these niches for information products are opening
    up. Depending upon your marketing strategy, you will be able to earn money right from
    day one. Although becoming disabled can sometimes cause emotional roller coasters of feeling up and then down, being
    able to contribute in some way can sometimes take
    the feeling of helplessness away.
