Virtual, mixed and ambient rehabilitation

Another interesting link courtesy of Katie Kirby:

Advanced technology in health care (including rehab) website:

I had a look, and it all feels almost like reading science-fiction, with a wealth of information about virtual reality, mixed reality (mixing of real world and virtual reality), ambient intelligence  ('a seamless environment of computing, advanced networking technology and specific interfaces. It is aware of the specific characteristics of human presence and personalities, takes care of needs and is capable of responding intelligently to spoken or gestured indications of desire, and even can engage in intelligent dialogue' - sounds pretty nice) and other things I confess I haven't heard of before. 

A site that seems to have a lot of good information, but will take a few hours and some spare brain capacity to explore. I am storing it as a treat for the next holidays.
