3D Printed Iron Man Prosthetic Hand Can Light up a Kid’s Life

Pat Starace is not only multi-talented, he also has a golden heart. More specifically, a crimson and golden heart. The animator, artist, designer and tinkerer recently shared his design for a 3D printed Iron Man prosthetic hand for children. It can make life a bit brighter for disabled kids in more ways than one.

We’ve seen a 3D printed Iron Man-themed prosthetic hand before, but Pat went to great lengths to make his creation look cool. First of all, Pat hid the wires that makes the hand and fingers move. You can’t fault anyone for thinking that it’s a general purpose toy and not a prosthetic hand. Second, Pat added an electronics module as well as several lights, which he says can be motion- or voice-activated. The palm thruster in particular is a sight to behold. Pat is also confident that the design can accommodate more electronics, including a smartwatch and sensors.

Pat is very interested in polishing and turning his design into a commercially available product. Until then, Pat is willing to make this hand for kids in need. You can get in touch with Pat through his website.
