On the "Vision of the Possible": Brief Thoughts.....

This "Blog Channel" within "Outsiders" has been envisioned to reflect upon a vision of the possible.  One of the key areas I've focused on is Technology and hope that I can build upon.     As I gear up for a new quarter, I continue to be ever so fascinated by the evolution of Technology as I continue to be concerned about the future.

One very interesting evolutionary idea I saw was this--this is truly within the Vision of the Possible that I believe will give hope when at times there is no hope.

Hugh Herr: The new bionics that let us run, climb and dance

19:00 minutes · Filmed Mar 2014 · Posted Mar 2014 · TED2014
Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by nature's own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Lab’s Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk that's both technical and deeply personal — with the help of ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost her left leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and performs again for the first time on the TED stage.
