  1. 8th Graders Craft Frozen-Inspired Prosthetic Hand for Little Girl

    You gotta hand it to them.

    Ariah is a 6-year-old who was born without most of her right hand. When the robotics program in Deer Creek Intermediate School in St. Francis, Wisconsin learned about this, they decided that they would do something to help her out.

  5. Seven-Year-Old Gets a 3D Printed Prosthetic Stormtrooper Arm From the 501st Legion and e-NABLE

    *Sniff* What? There's just something in my eye, OK?

    Prosthetic limbs are usually too expensive to be practical for most children (one in 1,500) born with partially formed arms. 3D printing has the capacity to not only lower the cost significantly and put prosthetics in reach for people in need, but also raise kids' spirits with some really personalized designs like this stormtrooper arm from the 501st legion.

  6. Today In Adorable: Here’s a 3D-Printed Iron Man Prosthetic For Underprivileged Children

    Jarvis, reroute all power to the FEELINGS.

    One of the awesome things about 3D printing is that it makes manufacturing prosthetics much, much simpler to do. If you have the right design, all you need is the money for raw materials and access to a printer. The only problem is that 3D designed arms don't exactly come out looking particularly unobtrusive or real like the expensive models can—but who needs reality when you can be Iron Man?

  8. Arizona Man 3D-Printed a New Prosthetic Hand for Under $100, See It in Action

    Cool, but how much for a Mega Man Buster Gun?

    Earlier this year we covered "The Cyborg Beast," an open-source 3D-printable prosthetic hand that costs about $50. It looks like an Arizona man has taken the design (or something similar) and adapted it for his friend who lost three fingers in an accident.

  9. An Amputee Turtle Was Given New Life With The Addition Of Jet Wings From An F-22

    If the Strike Witches had a pet turtle, it would be this guy.

    Usually if you’re a turtle and you lose a vitally-important flipper, it’s all downhill from there. Lucky for Hofesh, a sea turtle amputee, the kind folks at Isreal’s Sea Turtle Rescue Center have developed a solution for special-needs turtles – one they developed from a fighter jet. Hofesh was tragically caught in a fishing net […]

  10. You Can Print a Prosthetic Hand for $50 That’s Better Than One That Costs $42,000

    For when you want to feel less like A MONSTEEEEEER!

    Being born without a left hand really sucks. Jose Delgado Jr, however, is pretty used to it at this stage in his life, and has decent enough insurance that he didn't need to pay the full $42,000 sticker price for his prosthetic device. But as it turns out, he actually prefers a much cheaper prosthesis that you can make yourself with very minimal effort.
