Just because the Hangout series has wrapped up, doesn’t mean that these great community projects are at the end.
Make The World: Prosthetics was a one month program on Google+ aimed at crowdsourcing the manufacturing and delivery of DIY open prosthetics to people in need. The program was hosted by Adafruit’s Limor Fried, Matt Griffin and Phillip Torrone. Key partners on the program included 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” hosted this month long effort.
