In an additional inspiring Technion connection to the Paralympics: the ceremonial cauldron in Trafalgar Square, to launch the torch relay at the opening of the Games, and in the presence of British PM David Cameron, was lit by Claire Lomas, wearing the ReWalk exoskeletal suit invented by Technion graduate Dr. Amit Goffer, and developed and manufactured by the company he heads, Argo Medical Technologies. ReWalk is a life-changing invention that enables parapalegics to walk.

Claire Lomas gained international fame last May when she completed the London Marathon wearing ReWalk.

Video reports of Claire Lomas lighting the ceremonial cauldron can be seen here.

It can sing and teach science, watch it here in action!

RoboThespian™ as its name implies, is a dramatic actor robot complete with gestures, facial expressions and so on. Now, thanks to collaboration between Technion and MadaTech- The Israel National Museum of Science, Technology & Space, Thespian has gained summer employment as a teacher! One August 2012 morning we witnessed the first ever formal science lesson on the topic of levers, taught to a group of grade 5-6 Israeli students. This experimental live lesson was given in the framework of the project conducted by Prof. Igor Verner of the Technion's Department of Education in Technology and Science and Dr. Takuya Hashimoto of Tokyo University of Science together with Alex Polishuk and Niv Krainer of MadaTech and Technion. RoboThespian™, produced by "Engineered Arts" of the UK, was bought two years ago by MadaTech for the robotics exhibition held there
