Invention of the Day: Company Creates Marvel, 'Star Wars' and 'Frozen' Bionic Arms For Kids
Thanks to the Disney Accelerator Program, some lucky kids are getting the chance to make their dreams come true.
UK-based company Open Bionics is developing these super awesome prosthetic limbs for kids based on Iron Man, Star Wars, and Frozen.
"They won't have to do boring physical therapy, they'll train to become heroes. They're not just getting medical devices, they're getting bionic hands inspired by their favorite characters," the company said in a statement.
Disney has provided consultation on the project and royalty-free licensing.
Working with Lucasfilm's ILMxLAB and Disney creative teams, the 3D-printed arms are based on on Iron Man's gauntlet, a lightsaber and Queen Elsa's hand.
