Persuasive Intent
Inspired by a partially-robotic climb of a Chicago skyscraper, ETH Zurich launched the CYBATHLON, an Olympic-style competition combining man and machine. CYBATHLON 2020 is poised to demonstrate the accelerated development of assistive devices from prosthetic limbs to exoskeletons; and from stair-climbing wheelchairs to brain-computer interfaces.
