Team EMA at TEDx Brasília

The goals and achievements in our Project EMA were shared globally in the first TEDx Brasília. Me and Estevão Lopes, our pilot in Cybathlon 2016, have been invited to talk about Energy, Muscle, and Self-esteem. We would like to thank the organizers to arrange such an unforgettable experience.

Cybathlon 2016

The first Cybathlon competition took place in Zurich, Switzerland, in October 8th 2016. It was an amazing experience for all athletes, developers, and public.
