3D-Printed Superhero Prosthetic Hands Built By Volunteer Engineers

How badass would it be to have Wolverine claws on your hand? Well, now it’s possible for these disabled kids in need of arms and hands with specially-engineered, 3D-printed, prosthetic limbs that look like those of superheroes, i.e. Wolverine or Ironman!


The prosthetic hands are provided by a group of volunteers made up of engineers, 3D-printing specialists, physical therapists, designers, and pretty much anyone else who wants to help provide free prosthetic limbs to children. The group is called E-Nabling The Future and they are now distributing their 3D-printed, superhero hands to some lucky kids.

Obviously the children who receive these 3D-printed superhero prosthetics love it! They find out they’re different from most other people at a young age, when they see the majority of other people with two hands and realize they have a disability. Now that sense of being different is actually more of a sense of being awesome, because they have superhero hands!

Those arms and hands are boss!

About Sascha Brian

Sascha Brian
Known around here as "the German", I am indeed German, but have also spent some time traveling the world. With 10 years of my life spent in the United States, rumor has it that I may even know how to grill a great burger. I don't wear socks with sandals any longer, but I still drink beer and eat sauerkraut like a German. When I'm not writing about motivational and inspirational people on Like A Boss, I can usually be found lifting things up and putting them back down in my garage gym (a.k.a. the dungeon).
