Speaking of improving the lives of children through the use of robotics, this RoboChair, developed by the industrial technology center of SAGA, looks to be designed to provide mobility to handicapped children.
Though at 300,000 - 500,000 yen, it seems somewhat expensive for a device that the child will quickly outgrow.
For some reason, I think this QoLT thing is going to be a big part of robotics work in the future. It should also be slightly safer than working on building killbots.
