Teen Makes a 9 year old's Prothetic Hand.....

This story has cute and heart warming all rolled into one.

16 year old Mason Wilde has always been a bit of a prodigy.  He was known at an early stage to take things apart and put them back together.  At 16 he built a computer from scratch.  It is his recent project though, has everyone talking.

Last year he changed the life of a family of a 9 year old boy who was born without most of his right hand.

From the article:
  • Using a 3-D printer at the Johnson County Library, Wilde made a prosthetic hand that opens and closes and can even hold a pencil.  
  • balance a book on it, even tie his own shoes
