This Boy Was Born With A Disability. His Father Changed His Life—With A 3D Printer.

What’s not included in this report is that Ivan Owen, who appeared briefly in the video above, uploaded a Youtube video in 2011 of a giant mechanical hand he had made as a toy and which Richard Van As, a tradesman from South Africa who had lost four fingers in an accident, saw and ended up collaborating with Ivan to create a prosthetic out of metal. After crowdfunding for the prototype they made a prosthetic hand for a 5-year-old South African child named Liam. Today you can find and download the design for the prosthetic hand for free on Thingverse, and follow Robohand’s progress here.
