Japan’s technological edge

20130203-105253.jpg

Japan, today, has a demographic problem where over 22% of their population consists of senior citizens. In order to make the lives of senior citizens better and enable them to move around and do more work than they physically can, engineers in Japan have invented a robotic suite that can be worn around a person’s arms or legs and it allows the old and physically challenged to walk and use their limbs far better than they could otherwise.

Japan has come up with an innovative technological solution to a challenge faced by the country and this is one of the many things that truly make Japan one of the most efficient countries in the world.

And what have we been doing? We’ve been busy building statues, neglecting education, banning books and films, punishing cartoonists, curbing the Internet, and ridiculing ideas that most of the uneducated population does not understand. It’s like we have no real problems.
