Here’s your feel good video of the day. Robert Downey Jr. visited seven-year-old Alex to present him with a new bionic arm.
Alex was born with a partially developed right arm. College student Albert Manero founded Limbitless, building and donating low-cost, 3D-printed bionic limbs for kids around the world. Alex was brought to a hotel to pick up his new bionic arm where he met none-other than Iron Man himself.
Robert Downey Jr. brought along his own invention to compare with Alex’s new arm. They try them on for size in a clip that will certainly bring a smile to your face. Alex’s arm has been designed to look like Iron Man’s arm, but is arguably better because his light works.
Channelling Tony Stark, RDJ said that he’s planning to outsource some of his projects to Albert. After all, these 3D-printed parts are significantly more affordable. Perhaps he won’t have to spend more than a billion dollars on an Iron Man suit, which will then go through hell and back.
