Synopsis

Inventor Bob Schneeveis had a simple question:

“How do we walk?”

Frustrated by a recent knee surgery, Bob wanted to understand and improve the human walking motion. So he spent five years designing and building a new knee…and not just a knee, but a machine that mimics his own walking motion and pulls him through the streets of Silicon Valley.

Bob’s Knee examines the unconventional methods of one man in his quest to improve the human machine.
