More encouraging evidence that people are good

Friday, December 20th, 2013

… and that 3D printing technology and the people developing it are creating miracles for the masses: Little girl with no fingers on one hand gets a 3D-printed prosthetic made by high school students.

And a bottle of pink nail polish for her new digits, to boot.

Sometimes the world — especially the central-control-freak part of the world — seems so bleak and black and freaking DOOOOMED. But oh, the wonders individuals can still produce!

    I don’t know what’s come of this, but apparently Schumer is trying to get 3-D firearms banned.

    Hey, talk about timing!

    I’ve just finished reading the book “Zero to Maker” about one man’s journey into the making world. Great book.

    Claire, don’t know if you actually read it, but if you haven’t, then I highly recommend it. It’s right up your alley. There’s even a way for you to get involved if there’s a make community in your area. With you being a writer. If you asked why being a writer is important in learning how to make? Another reason to read the book.

    Great for those kids for doing. They’re well poised for a good future.

    As for Schumer above, not fricking surprised. He’d cancel out the 2nd amendment if he had the votes to do it with, and in a New York minute.

    Reminds me of my father’s favorite saying: I cried because I had not shoes, until I met the man who had no feet.

    So glad this little girl has fingers now. :) And just as glad the boys have learned something about voluntary living. Win/win.

    Pretty cool technology and very nice Christmas present to give and receive.
