Students Use 3-D Printer To Produce Prosthetic Arm For $200
The possibilities are endless!
A trio of biomedical engineering students at the Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) managed to build a 13-year-old girl a robotic prosthetic arm using a 3-D printer. Incredibly, the robotic arm cost a meager $200 to make; normally a prosthetic would set you back a minimum of $6,000.

I am constantly amazed at the stuff technology comes up with each year. We are moving at such a fast pace technologically.
These students are to be applauded. Technology is nothing without bright inquisitive minds to question "what if?"
