Obama to get techie tour at Israel Museum

Barack Obama won’t only be checking out history at the Israel Museum today. As David Shamah reported earlier this week, seven of Israel’s most important contributions to technology — chosen by a committee of government and tech leaders — will be presented to Obama in the context of the museum’s “Israeli Technology for a Better World” exhibit. After touring the the exhibit, Obama will be introduced to the three young Israelis who won a robotics contest last year with their Robowaiter, a special robot “butler” designed to help the disabled.

Among the innovations presented to Obama will be an aluminum-air battery, a road safety alert system, a robotic snake, and a computer that can be controlled with the mind.
