The Boy and the Bionic Hand

This is a cool and sweet story about a persons encounter in an hospital with a boy with only one hand.

I origally found the story on Reddit’s gifs subreddit.

It is a story about a guy being in a bike accident and while recovering meet a boy that he tried to cheer up and long story short.

“He said that at least I had both hands,” Connor recalls. “I didn’t know how to respond.”

The guy that also is an engineer ended up building the boy a prostethic but now he has no way to get in contact with the boy. The prostethic is based on open source technology and may prove another step towards affordable prostethics that will enrich the life of those who may have lost limbs or part of it.
