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.

If you have any info about what you or any locals are doing with 3D printing, please send me an email to
