Like almost any seven-year-old, Alex Pring loves superheroes and riding his bike. Unlike most children, however, Alex was born with a partially developed right arm, and although he is comfortable with himself, he has spent most of his life avoiding the subject in public. Last summer, engineering student and e-NABLE volunteer Albert Manero collaborated with Alex’s family to 3D print a myoeletric prosthetic limb to give him back some confidence and control over his life. Little did they know, that was just the beginning of a project that would make Alex’s wildest dream come true.
