Engineer Builds A Navy Veteran A Cheap 3-D Printed Prosthetic Hand

Disabled U.S. Navy veteran Howard Kamarata couldn’t afford a medical prosthetic hand, due to the insurance co-pay requirements. So his buddy, an engineer named Casey Barrett, printed him one!

Using 3D printing technology, Barrett molded an inexpensive replacement for Kamarata’s missing fingers. The best part of it is that if it ever breaks, it will be very inexpensive to create another one just like it. This is just another exciting example for how this new technology is changing our lives, not in the future, but right now!
