3D Printed “Magic Arms” Video May Cause You To Wipe Your Eyes [video]

| August 4, 2012 | Reply

Not too long ago, I reported about the first 3D printed working gun. I mentioned how the printers will change medicine among other things. Here we have a prime example. A little girl who has no use of her arms. An engineer came up with  an exoskeleton type device to help her use her arms, but its metal is too heavy and too expensive to reproduce parts. With a 3d printer, the parts for the setup are lighter and instant making replacing the parts as the girl grows or a part breaks much cheaper and faster than metal formed pieces. Enjoy the video and the technology behind it.
