Talented and big hearted young engineers. Great story.

I’m not that old, but I remember that, when I was young, “human-controlled robotic hand that can grab objects” was the absolute cutting edge of mechatronic engineering. Now high school students can build a dextrous prosthetic for their classmate. How far we’ve come.

The cool part about the 3d printing communities is alot of designs and projects get made public so I'm sure they were able to use available resources and retrofit it for his particular hand. I've definitely seen that model before so it wasn't made from scratch. Still a really awesome project and thing to do though!

Amazing engineering.

Is it really the first time he's caught a baseball in his life though? He never caught one with his left hand?

Sounds like he didn't try hard enough before, my dog catches them without hands all the time.

Having to rely on your classmates to design and build you a prosthetic arm, rather than having access to one that is affordable or free is the exact definition of a boring dystopia. This sub is full of these "feel good" stories that really shine a light on how messed up our nation is.

I think he's implying that he should be given a prosthetic by default (or at the very least have reasonable access to one) instead of having to rely on the goodwill of his classmates. Not a terrible point.
