Watch This Girl Open Her 3D-Printed Arm And Get The World In Her Grasp

Post by Guest on Mon Aug 24, 2015 6:55 pm

We all have our idea of the perfect gift. But, trust us, few could probably compare with the box 8-year-old Isabella is about to open.

This child's luminous joy at receiving a 3D-printed arm with a gripping hand may just stick with you for the rest of the summer -- and beyond.

According to Pixable, Isabella got the prosthetic device from one Stephen Davies (who posted the video) through e-NABLE, a group that develops 3D limbs for those in need. Davies, from Swansea, Wales, traveled to Isabella's Bristol, England, home to deliver the package himself.

Davies, an e-NABLE volunteer who once received an artificial hand from the group and is now a tester and producer with his own 3D printer, wanted to pay it forward, e-NABLE's blog reported. The day was "nectar for the soul," he said.

Isabella was over the moon and quickly began experimenting with her new limb.

It’s amazing and I LOVE the colors!" she told e-NABLE. "I'm going to use it for as many things as I can!”

We don't doubt that for a second, Isabella.

The guy deserves a medal.

this is inspiring

I wonder what the full costs are involved with getting setup to build these?
the machines the site recommend if you want to try and build these limbs range from $700 to $2000+.... the plastic ranges from 40 to 100 dollars a kilo.. there are some other no printable parts to.

I am going to look into this some more I would like a 3d printer and this it would be an excellent excuse to spend the money

Amazing, I can't imagine technology in another 10 years.  What can't be achieved!
