Have you ever started freaking out when your phone or tablet suddenly ran out of power? We all have. At that moment, you desperately try to find an outlet to charge your device. A lot of people feel like their phone is a part of their body, figuratively speaking, of course. However, this is literally the case for Angel Giuffra, a bionics advocate, and actress.
She was attending SXSW Conference in Austin, Texas when her robotic arm ran out of power.
The actress shared her story on Twitter, where confused conference attendees refused to give up their charging stations. Some people thought her arm was a prop, or that she was cosplaying, and that it was not an actual prosthesis.
Thankfully, she finally found an outlet to bring her arm back to life and holds no grudges against those that refused to give her access to their station.
She went on to tweet about the incident and shed light on some of the daily struggles that people with prosthetic limb encounter.
