Make The World: Prosthetics is a one month program on Google+ aimed at crowdsourcing the manufacturing and delivery of DIY open prosthetics to people in need. The program will be hosted by Adafruit’s Limor Fried, Matt Griffin and Phillip Torrone. Key partners on the program include Robohand, MakerBot, The Open Hand Project, Anthromod, Prosthetics for Prosperity, eNABLE, The Lucky Fin Project and Hands for Africa.
Adafruit’s Makers, Hackers, Artists and Engineers Community under the subsection “Make The World” is hosting this month long effort. Community members will post up with what they can help with, suggest people in need, and post pictures of their accomplishments/builds. In addition Makers will be able to find support for the creation of Robohands in the eNABLE Community on Google+.
This Friday we’ll have our our fourth and final Hangout on Air. Please stop by to tune in live at 8pm ET on Friday 10/4/13, join the Adafruit Google+ page and community page to post comments, ask questions, participate and more!
