    If I weren't an atheist, I'd build a dozen praying robots to pray for her whole brain tumor situation to get solved with no problem. At least we know that she's not going to perform a surgery on herself with her own robots.

    Exxageration, she is just another entertainer.she is just selling stupid things and useless things to make her famous....i don't get any enlightment and new informative knowledge from her Ted talk. I'm wasting my time. Ted, she is just trying to earn money from her useless channel...and the audience were bored already

    She is exactly like me. What is scary, she also discovered a tumor in her head, yes, just like me. Currently going to school for engineering and psychology and playing league of legends in my down time. The thing about league is I am very good at it and climbing fast and the world, when they can watch me, when I am not screwed like I am right now, is tagging along and cheering me on. I do that as well as Activisim. I speak from a top of a soap box. Anyway, pretty good at lots, amazing at some, and terrible at math and memory. They are related. Anyway, love you girl, as a random man in the net, we should get married. One last thing. Chip and Dale rescue rangers. There is a character named Gadget, you can see where I am going with this, I always loved her and thought she was so cute and awesome with her useless stuff that is actually useful and amazing. This chick is just like her. Pale, light hair, engineering. Hard to say no. Anyway, enough. K bye

    Yes, those kinds of stuff are useless, or we can say that every prototype or research is useless, for the first time. What really important is the idea. So later other people can implement those ideas or improve the products.
