Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.

Since it’ll apparently take 50+ years before we get Apollo Justice 2, or any conclusion to dangling plot-threads, I’m going to leave my kids nothing but a Ouija board to pass down in the family, and the promise of great treasure to whoever can answer my spirit’s question.
I don’t care if my great-great-great grandkids have to play ‘Ace Attorney Now In Space’, I want to know what the fuck was up with Kristoph’s psychelocks.
