Your Feel Good Story Of The Day

A young boy in Augusta, GA was gifted with a clone trooper “arm” created by a 3D printer.

The lad was born without a lower arm, so the fine folks at E-nable designed and created one for him for free. Since he’s a big clone trooper fan, the arm was inspired by his favorite men in armor.

The prosthetic was presented to him at a ceremony with the 501st Georgia Garrison.

ABC News has the full story and photos.

    If there’s one area of science that Star Wars has influenced scientists in, it’s the study of prosthetics. This article proves it. And thank you Liam for emphasizing the distinction between Clone Troopers and Storm Troopers.

      That is nice for Liam and I hope he enjoys his new arm and have a happy life.

      Though I believe clone troopers and stormtroopers are one in the same, they never were good or evil. It was wrong of the Repiblic to use them and it bit them back in the end. They are supposed to be a very grey area because of this.

    He has taste. He even put a proper eight-armed Bendu on it.

    Oh wow. I overheard my wife wwatchinga news story about a boy getting a new arm from a 3-D printer, but I didn’t hear the Clone detail and I’m surprised she didn’t say anything.
