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!
