Google Lends Helping Hand to 3D Printed Prosthetics & Bionics
3D printing non-profit e-NABLE has been lending a helping hand to an increasing number of people with disabilities in the form of 3D printed prosthetic hands. While e-NABLE works on their own brand of prosthetics, another group in Japan, exiii, is working on 3D printed bionic arms.
