Project Daniel

This started with Project Daniel. A young Sudanese boy lost his arms in a bombing in his community. Mick Ebeling heard about the boy and created a 3D printer that works with a laptop to 3D print the boy a hand, and Daniel could successfully use it soon after. Not Impossiblenow prints prosthetics like these for other amputees, and the company uses a perpetual crowdfunding site to help with healthcare issues that seemed impossible to tackle before. It only costs $100 to print a limb. By teaching the community how to use the 3D printer, they can learn how to do it themselves.
