Not Impossible Labs brought a collection of maker greats to the office for a workshop weekend to prototype prosthetic hands to take on The Daniel Project to help kids in Africa who’ve lost limbs in the conflicts.
Robohand creator/inventor and mastermind Richard Van As was on hand, as was PrintRBot founder and CEO Brook Drumm, Not Impossible CEO Mick Ebeling, physical therapist and MIT neuroscientist Dr. David Putrino and more….
Make The World: Prosthetics was a one month program on Google+ aimed at crowdsourcing the manufacturing and delivery of printed prosthetics to people in need, hosted by Adafruit’s Limor Fried, Matt Griffin and Phillip Torrone. The Adafruit G+ Community Adafruit’s Makers, Hackers, Artists and Engineers Community under the subsection “Make the World” continues to provide a venue for this ongoing conversation — Join us there!
