This Paralympian Danced the Samba With a Robot While Wearing a 3-D-Printed Dress


It can’t get any more 2016 than this. With a performance possible only in this day and age, Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy and a robotic arm wowed the crowd at the Paralympics Opening Ceremonies with a samba-inspired dance routine. While wearing a 3-D-printed dress.

“It’s the relationship of the human spirit with technology,” Purdy told the Washington Post. “That’s really what the Paralympics is about, these amazing athletes and this technology that’s allowing them to reach their full potential.”
