How my legs give me super-powers: Aimee Mullins on TED.com

Athlete, actor and activist Aimee Mullins talks about her prosthetic legs — she’s got a dozen amazing pairs — and the superpowers they grant her: speed, beauty, an extra 6 inches of height … Disabled? No, the opposite. She redefines what the human body will become. (Recorded at TED U, February 2009 in Long Beach, California. Duration: 09:59.)
