Robot enables injured Kansas student to stay connected to his high school (w/Video)

A 16-year-old Kansas boy who was paralyzed in a farm accident last month is able to roam the halls of his high school even though he is undergoing rehabilitation in Denver. The Hutchinson News reports that Kolton Kincaid was controlling a robot equipped with an iPad to move through the halls of Haven High School in Haven, Kan., and talk to teachers and fellow students.
