Easton LaChappelle shows off an earlier version of his robotic arm [via Popular Science] Combining a Nintendo Power Glove with 3D-printed parts, 17 year-old Easton LaChappelle has designed an incredible robotic prosthetic arm . As a young teen, the designer still played with his LEGO bricks, but instead of LEGO fortresses, the 14 year old built his first foray into robotics. Made from LEGOs, fishing wire, and surgical tubing, LaChapelle built version one of his robotic arm, which earned him 3rd place in the Colorado Science Fair of 2011, and inspired him to go even further with the 3D-printed design.
