17-Year-Old Creates a 3D-Printed Robotic Prosthetic Arm for $250

Combining a Nintendo Power Glove with 3D-printed parts, 17-year-old Easton LaChappelle has designed an incredible robotic prosthetic arm. Made from LEGO bricks, fishing wire, and surgical tubing, LaChapelle’s robotic arm earned him 3rd place in the Colorado Science Fair of 2011 – which inspired him to go even further with the 3D-printed design.

At the Science Fair, LaChapelle encountered an entrant who wore an $80,000 prosthetic arm that would need replacing as she grew. Inspired and intrigued, he decided to take his homemade robotic arm, which could only grip a soda can, to the next level. His new goal was to create a high-tech prosthetic arm that was not only highly functional, but also affordable.

GBBO 2k15 Maximum Rundown Ep. 1

BEFORE WE BEGIN THIS IS THE SPOILEREST THING THAT EVER SPOILED A SPOILER SO WATCH THE FIRST EPISODE OF BAKE OFF BEFORE YOU LOOK AT THIS MADNESS. 

Now, we may begin. 

FUCK THIS GUY 

FUCK THIS GUY AND HIS RULE-BREAKING CHANCE-TAKING JAZZ-PLAYING Have you tried m’baking? *tips fedora* BULLSHIT 

BETWEEN HIS CARAMEL WANK-TASTROPHE AND THE UNGODLY HORROR THAT WAS HIM ATTEMPTING TO WEDGE A ROOT VEGETABLE THAT NO-ONE LIKES INTO A CHOCOLATE FUCKING CAKE, I WANTED TO GARROTTE HIM WITH HIS OWN BLOODY DOUBLE-BASS STRINGS 

The word you’re looking for is shit. It’s in the thesaurus under “YOUR PERFORMANCE” 

Now that we’ve dealt with the agony of Stu (Seriously one fucking caramelised walnut Jesus Christ) We can move on to other better things. Like Ugne.

Ugne is half-Ludmilla Drago half-Ivan Drago and all-badass. She does however have a few… Issues… 

Between the NOS 

And the other stuff 

Still at least she’s not as bad as Tamal 

I can’t wait for his biscuit theme next week. A frightened cluster of custard creams bound together with surgical tubing. 

All in all it was an excellent first week of Bake Off apart from Stu and the other horsemen of the arsepocalypse Paul and Ian. (Although Ian redeemed himself towards the end.) It brought some incredible and sometimes chilling moments that I will leave you with. Like:

Hello Paul Squared 

And Mary Berry’s rollercoaster of gin emotions 

See you next week for another measured account of everything going on on The Great British Bake Off. Remember you can follow my precise procedural summaries on all the usual Bake Off tags but more specifically #BakeOffWithRoss 

Buh-bye and hold on to your buns.

I’ve always sympathized with women going through their periods because it sounds uncomfortable and painful but since my surgical tubes drains are leaking and I’m constantly getting blood running down my leg and ruining my underpants so I really feel y'all now
