Everyone who has seen the new trailer for Iron Man 3 has also seen everything destroyed. This includes Tony’s ocean front house. Which begs the question did his Prize winning robot called “Dummy” survive the devastating attack??

Robotic Exoskeleton of the Day: Austin Whitney, a 22-year-old paraplegic UC Berkeley student, crossed the stage at graduation using a robotic exoskeleton designed by Cal professor Homayoon Kazerooni.
The exoskeleton, which is controlled by a switch on a walker, allows paraplegics to sit, stand and take steps. It’s projected to cost $15,000, which is about as much as a motorized wheelchair, and six times less than Kazerooni’s top-of-the-line eLegs exoskeleton.
Whitney was paralyzed from the waist down when he crashed his car in a drunk driving accident shortly after he graduated from high school. He thought he would never walk again.
