PhilaU Industrial Design Student Creates Prosthetic Arm for Local Man: Philly Voice

Philadelphia University industrial design student Jackson Gordon created a 3D-printed prosthetic arm based on a video game to help a local man born without a left hand, Philly Voice reported Jan. 9.

Jackson, who started the design firm Armatus Designs, based the hand on “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain,” designing it to be cost-effective and functional for the recipient. Gordon has made the design of the forearm, which can be created for about $100, available to others to use through open-file sharing.
