INTERNATIONAL BEST SUMMER SCHOOL ON HUMAN-ROBOT INTERACTION
VUB organizes a 10 day summerschool for 20 European students about human-robot interaction. BEST stands for Board of European Students of Technology and is a growing non-profit and non-political organisation, providing communication, co-operation and exchange possibilities for students all over Europe. Every year BEST Brussels organizes a summerschool, this year the topic is Human-Robot Interaction with presentations about exoskeletons, prostheses, social robots and an important part workshops in which they learn to make their own interactive robot with rapid prototyping machines as 3D printers and laser cutting machines.

A 'leg exoskeleton' was demonstrated last week at the American Spinal Injury Association meeting in Chicago (May 6 -, 2013). Indego, as it is called, is a wearable device, still away from the market. It can be used only under the supervision of physical therapists and before becoming available for personal use will take years of research.
