Limbitless Solutions is a non-profit that harnesses the latest technology to help those with disabilities. They designed and 3D-printed a prosthetic arm for 9-year-old Star Wars fan Alvin Garcia Flores. When the arm was ready, they enlisted the help of the Central Garrison - 501st Legion to do a special presentation to Flores at Gateway Elementary School in Omaha. Darth Vader himself showed up to give Flores his new arm!
School principal Terry Burton arranged for both the custom-made arm and the Star Wars presentation. That’s the kind of principal you don’t forget. If you think about it, it’s no surprise that a boy missing an arm would feel a special connection with Star Wars. In that universe, bionic arms are commonplace. Limbitless Solutions is doing their part to make them more commonplace in our world, too. -via Geeks Are Sexy
