Bill Gates's "Robotic Britches"

The expeditious growth of the field of robotics nets a nice summary from Bill Gates following his visit to the Harvard Robotics Laboratory. 

Gates describes “robotic britches” worn like pants to help rehabilitate people with injuries or stroke survivors. He marvels at prototypes of bee-sized flying robots—dexterous scouts for search and rescue missions or monitoring climate change—and spongy appendages to assist deep sea researchers by gently handling delicate specimens. All are advances with “[great] potential to improve our lives [...] and meet medical and other technological challenges,” Gates writes.
