+ - Opensource robotic prosthetic hand can be made for $1000->

Submitted by Hallie Siegel
Hallie Siegel (2973169) writes "Joel Gibbard tells us about how was able to create a functional prototype for a robotic prosthetic hand for just $1000. Usually, prosthetic hands cost between $11,000-$110,000 making them too expensive more many amputees to afford, especially in developing countries. Joel uses 3d printing and some smart design decisions to keep costs down."
