eMerge TechWeek: University of Miami robots and more

Soccer-playing robots, drones that help map informal cities like favelas and Uride, a data-parsing technology that helps determine incidents of illness in a given resident data set, were among the technologies on display at the University of Miami's exihbit.

One of the most impressive was Harvey, a medical robotic teaching tool that simulates the sounds, pulse and breathing of 50 different cardiopulmonary conditions. 

Equally impressive is a personal health assessment tool that provides a quick health assessment and advises each individual how to become healthier. Some of us already know the answer: More exercise.
