Meet Easton LaChappelle, The Teen Building a Cheaper, Better Prosthetic Arm

19-year-old Easton LaChappelle is already changing the world for the better. He was inspired at a very young age because he met a little girl using a limb that cost $80,000, and it struck him as far too expensive. He started on this project with his legos, taught himself robotics and 3D printing to create a completely functional prosthetic arm. Then he released his designs for free so anyone could use and improve upon them. As new tools emerge, 3D modeling and object scanning becomes as simple as placing the object under a camera, young minds and hearts are given more opportunity to redefine the world.
