Don't Mind Me, Just Charging

Angel Giuffria attended SXSW going on now in Austin. At a tech conference, you'll always see people charging up their phones, but Giuffria needed to charge up her bionic arm.  

People at this SXSW panel refused to give up charging their phones so I could charge my arm.

But I found an outlet in the back of the room so CHARGE ME UP.

She told us more about the arm at Twitter.

Y’all I’m not mad at them! I thought it was funny (bc there was another plug nearby.) For all I know, they were confused by the entire situation since everyone here at #SXSW seems to think my arm is a video game fashion statement or fancy lit up glove not a prosthesis ¯\_(ツ)_,

It takes about two hours to get a full charge. Giuffria's arm does not use an external battery, but at home she removes the arm and charges it overnight. Her Twitter feed is full of great posts and links about robotic prostheses.
