Watch Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by natures own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Labs Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk thats both technical and deeply personal — with the help of ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost her left leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and performs again for the first time on the TED stage.TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the worlds leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less).
