People have fashioned humble cane for all kinds of purposes over thousands of years — from chairs to baskets to walking sticks and just when one would be inclined to imagine this grass has been used in every which way possible, Arun Cherian, an advanced robotics engineer in biomechanical locomotion in the USA, suddenly stumbled on to a stunning and complex new use.
Cherian was researching and developing cutting-edge mobility devices like wearable exo-skeletal suits for US marines. He also worked on several bio-inspired designs for the disabled that were truly remarkable but exorbitantly priced, some costing as much as Rs 80 lakh.
