Kid gets awesome 3D printed cyborg hand

If you wanted one reason why 3D printing is the next wave of awesome innovation, look no further than this. A Massachusetts father found the plans online for a prosthetic hand for his son, spent $2000 on the 3D printer itself, and about $10 in materials to give his son a working hand.

There are some small local groups such as SpokaneCreate.org and places like the Mead High School where kids can experiment with 3D printing, but we really need to raise awareness of just how insanely useful and awesome this technology is. If you have any info about what you or any locals are doing with 3D printing, please send me an email to dang@spokesman.com.

The Tech Deck

Technology stuff, Game reviews, poorly photoshopped images and offbeat humor from the geeks who run spokesman.com and spend too much time on Imgur/Reddit. Send your nerd stuff to dang@spokesman.com and we might write about it. Or we might poorly photoshop it and mock it mercilessly, as all good nerds are wont.
