We are already starting to see advanced robotics for the disable, and the Japanese are working on it for elder care. In some ways this is the hope of robotics, they can enrich our lives.
 
Robot technology can reduce human disabilities.


A new 3-D navigation system helps blind people navigate.

Reported in New Scientist, it includes a "pair of glasses equipped with cameras and sensors like those used in robot exploration, and a handheld electronic Braille device. The system produces a 3-D map of the wearer’s environment and his/her position within it that is constantly updated and displayed in a simplified form on the handheld device."

"It uses accelerometers and gyroscopes to track the user’s location and speed, generating roughly 10 maps every second that are transmitted to a handheld Braille device and displayed as a dynamic tactile map."
