Invention of a Leg: A Love Story



I'm a bit bogged down with my January term lab course and a ridiculous amount of meetings, so I thought the best entry for this month may be a video. These are the slides from a presentation I gave to 4th graders at Cedar Park Elementary School in Minnesota.

Unfortunately, the video capture program I have decided to display a mirror image of me, so it looks like my voice is dubbed. Sorry if it's disconcerting.

Next time, I hope to post the video that Mechanical Engineering students took of me with the latest version. For their their senior project at the University of Minnesota, they refined the design so that it could fit comfortably in a regular shoe.

More information on the foot can be seen at Pongratz Engineering, LLC.
