Connext DDS, Robotic Limbs, and the Borg 1

Has our CTO been assimilated by the Borg and given new fancy limbs for becoming part of the collective? No. No he hasn’t. Phew!

But while Gerardo was visiting ESA Telerobotics and Haptics Laboratory (ESA/ESTEC), they let him try out their awesome human arm exoskeleton.

A big thank you to the team at ESA Telerobotics and Haptics Laboratory for sharing their work with us, and for this great picture of Gerardo. We’re looking forward to seeing your progress!
