"In early 2019, Ian Davis lost 4 of his digits on his left hand to a work accident. His insurance did not cover his prosthetic." So he made his own mechanical solution.

"The prosthetic Ian built has literally zero electricity need, it works with a set of elastic strings, rods, chains, nails a forearm rest, and whatnot."

We're living a dystopia but, damn, engineers are amazing.

@Argus I think an event like that would force me to learn how to diy my own solution. Good on him for making the decision to help himself.
