Just wanted to share! My BF was on CNN for his research in the Engineering Rehabilitation Robotics Lab at USF for building a dance chair.

It''s brief, but was so cool to see! I''m proud!

I almost didn''t list it since it shows his full name, but hell, it was on TV, can''t be more public than that so I thought, why not?

That is so impressive! What a neat development. My best friend is in a wheel chair because of muscular dystrophy! She boogies just as hard as those of us up on our legs but this sort of thing would definitely allow for more expressive movement than wiggling in a seat!

I passed this on to my friend who is in the bio mechanics department here in my grad school. I''m sure he will find it interesting.

Thanks guys! He''s so cute and excited about it. USF put it up on the Academic Affairs Provost Office homepage so it''s getting a lot of hits and he keeps getting emails of congratulations. I love my BF!

Enjoy it! I think it''s so cool! And Sean was calling me the day of (not knowing he was being interviewed) asking me if I had $10 in cash so he could run and get a hair cut really quick! Boys...

Thanks everyone! He keeps telling me to stop telling/showing people because it ''wasn''t that big of a deal''....I guess I''m embarrassing him with all the attention. But I can''t help it! I''m so proud of him!
