At age 18, he perfected his designs with the MK2, a prosthetic arm with the ability to bend and pick up objects with a pincer-like grip. Now, he’s the coolest kid on the block.

David said, “I made an arm out of Lego pieces that I had used before to make a helicopter. I took it apart and built it, using the form of my hand. It completely fits the interior part of my arm.
