SBS Viceland The Feed

Our Teleport Brain Control continues to capture the public’s attention.  We filmed a segment with SBS Viceland’s The Feed with our friend Anthony Bartl who has been paralysed from the neck down since he was 6 and in a car accident.  He got to see the top floor of his house for the first time!


We also took Anthony and Teleport to the Melbourne War Memorial.

We look forward to the company’s next chapter as aubot.
