Building Utopia: Fox TV casting in Vermont for new reality show
BRATTLEBORO — If you’re a Jack or Jane of all trades and have a year to kill, Fox TV is looking for you. In Fox’s new reality show, “Utopia,” 15 people will leave behind all they know and love to create their own ideal mini-society, all the while being followed by hundreds of cameras.
The Cybathlon is a championship for racing pilots with disabilities (i.e. parathletes) who are using advanced assistive devices including robotic technologies. The competitions are comprised by different disciplines that apply the most modern powered knee prostheses, wearable arm prostheses, powered exoskeletons, powered wheelchairs, electrically stimulated muscles and novel brain-computer interfaces. The assistive devices can include commercially available products provided by companies, but also prototypes developed by research labs. There will be two medals for each competition, one for the pilot, who is driving the device, and one for the provider of the device. The event is organized on behalf of the Swiss National Competence Center of Research in Robotics (NCCR Robotics).
