Think about the 9-year-old kids you know. They're probably playing soccer and making Snapchat videos. That's not a knock on being 9âit's just a fact that illustrates how truly remarkable 9-year-old Calramon Mabalot is.

Calramon and his brother, Calexis, have a real passion for 3D printing. But, rather than just printing neat stuff like toys and action figures, these guys are printing prosthetic hands, with actual working fingers.
The brothers got their start in prosthetic printing when they met a teacher named Nick at their local library. Nick needed a hand, and Calramon thought, "Hey, I can do that."
In an interview withÂ 3D Printing Industry, Calramon explains that he built and assembled the prostheticÂ using a downloaded technology from the project E-Nabling the Future. This group started asÂ an initiative that buildsÂ 3D printed hands for kids who are missing fingers.
