Blog – ‘You-Tuber’ with Quadriplegia is not a Cyborg

October 6, 2016

We have shown you his videos before. Dan, a young man with quadriplegia from the YouTube channel, Just Happened To Be has done it again.


VIDEO “Being Human” or: A Thing About Wheelchairs, Robots, and Evolution

He has created something new to show others – able-bodied or not – what living with paralysis actually means. And how it hasn’t changed him that much as a person.


The three minute video is cleverly written and produced, comparing Dan’s adaptive devices to particular points in the evolution of the world and its creatures. If that sounds like a stretch, it is not. Dan connects the unconnected by revealing all his gizmos and gadgets to prove that underneath he is just a guy.
