Ironman-aka Robert Downey Jr. gives 7 year old boy missing a limb a 3D printed arm!

Alex Pring, a 7-year old boy born without a fully developed arm recently received a pretty awesome gift! A functioning 3-D Printed arm, fashioned after Ironman’s suit. Central Florida students and graduates called Limbitless Solutions, created the electronic prototype just for Alex.

The icing on the cake? Robert Downey Jr., Ironman himself, gave Alex his new arm in person. The two compared how Alex actually had the better technology.
