Derby the dog: Running on 3D Printed Prosthetics
Derby is a playful puppy born with a congenital deformity that gave him small forearms and no front paws. He could get around on soft surfaces and even used a cart at one point, but his mobility just couldn’t match his spirit. Yesterday, 3D printing firm 3D Systems announced that it has made Derby his own set of prosthetic limbs. He’s running outside.
Stories like this remind me of how much good can be done via engineering and new technologies.
