Female athlete in 3D printed dress were dancing with robot at opening of Paralympic Games

A famous American snowboarder and participant of the Paralympic Games impressed everyone with her chic appearance and a special dance with KUKA manipulator. At the opening of the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Amy Purdy was gracefully dancing with a machine in the inimitable 3D printed dress made by designer Danit Peleg.       

Paralympic female athlete and wonderful dancer 

American pretty girl Amy Purdy lost both legs because of brain fever complications at 17 years old. Although, it didn’t stop the girl, and in nine months after surgery, she learnt to walk on artificial limbs and went snowboarding again. Amy’s achievements include the third place at 2014 Paralympic Games and the second place at 2012 Para-Snowboard Championship. Thus, the athlete has proven that one can follow their interests in all circumstances. The main thing is the desire.    

But Amy not only goes snowboarding incredibly but also dances beautifully. She has shown it just recently at the Paralympic opening ceremony. A happy female athlete’s dance couple was the industrial robot called Kuka Roboter. The dance was really graceful and balanced, which broke stereotypes of disabled people with artificial limbs and of dangerous interaction between a machine and human being.

Amy’s magnificent body and graceful moves were highlighted by the unique 3D printed dress made by talented Danit Peleg. A designer has been long experimenting with additive technologies, producing exclusive clothes using 3D printing. Amy’s dress seemed to be almost weightless; it was perfectly fitted and looked like an intriguing highlight of the performance.
