I thought this was quite amazing since a dad did this for his son. I guess the path of innovation in the world is gonna be done by people who actually care. It does not look awkward at all since the kid can catch a ball with it. How do you think this will affect the internet culture?

It’s happening people. We will have bionic implants in our lifetimes and start punching people with robot fists.

The future is looking good

This is a huge development.

Okay, so people have had prosthetics for a long time. And there are prosthetics much more impressive than the robohand.


BUT

This is something that can help devices get to underdeveloped areas. In developing nations where medicine is scarce and expensive, a single $1000 printer can help so many people.

Where once specialized, custom medical equipment was hard to come by, now it can be printed for a tiny fraction of the cost.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to order a 3d printer and move to Africa.
