The classiest 3D-printed arm you'll see all day

Evan Kuester

Design student Evan Kuester is far from the first person to use the customizability options and relatively low cost of 3D printing to replace a body part. There are prosthetic jawsprosthetic facesprosthetic duck feet, and articulated prosthetic fingers. But just take a look at this delicate, beribboned one-piece printed arm, worn by fellow student Ivania Castillo. Kuester explained his process to Make, and a bulkier (and light-equipped!) early model can be found on his site. It's like if Charlize Theron's cyborg hand from Mad Max was made by the designers behind Dita Von Teese's 3D-printed dress.
