Chad Jenkins' TED talk: robots for the physically disabled

Associate Professor Chad Jenkins and Henry Evans presented a great talk about using robots to improve the quality of life for the physically disabled at the TEDxMidAtlantic 2013 conference in Washington, D.C. Henry, who is a mute quadriplegic, presented remotely via a Beam mobile telepresence system from his home in Northern California. He also remotely flew a quad rotor helicopter live on stage.  View this inspiring and, at times, humorous presentation at
