A little boy has had the chance to emulate his superhero idol Iron Man after receiving a prosthetic hand modeled on the Marvel character’s gauntlets.
Three-year-old Hawaiian Rayven “Bubba” Kahae suffers from amniotic band syndrome (ABS), which meant he was born with a malformed right hand.
But thanks to new 3D printing techniques that are able to create cheap prosthetics (as well as the generosity of volunteer group E-Nabling who developed the plans), Bubba can now hold hands to his heart’s content.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that – as Bubba requested – it looks a bit like he’s a superhero.
Take a look at the news report above.
