Cybalthon 2016

05 Apr

Via io9, the first championship for tech-assisted athletes will be held in Zurich in 2016. Awards will be given both to the “pilot” of the prosthesis (the parathlete) and the company/organization that provides the winning device. Prototypes as well as commercially available devices can be used.

Perhaps competitions like this can drive technical innovation in cybernetic prostheses like the new Formula 1 rules are spurring innovation in automotive energy use. I certainly hope so.  Read more at the official Cybathlon website.
