Tony Stark Delivers Iron Man Prosthetic Arm to a Young Boy
Alex is a young boy born with a partially developed right arm. And he’s about to receive an Iron Man prosthetic arm delivered by Tony Stark himself.
As part of Microsoft OneNote Collective Project, head by Albert Manero presented a 3D printed, fully-functioning prosthetic arm for him. The 3D printed limb was made by Limbitless Solutions, a non-profit organization from the University of Central Florida made up of engineering students. They can also donate to them via PayPal through their website so that the team can print more cool prosthetic limbs for kids.
Given Alex’s love of superheroes, they’ve designed the arm in the likeness to Iron Man’s gauntlet. And who better to deliver the arm than Tony Stark himself. You can check out the video in Robert Downey jr’s tweet below.
