3D Printed Wolverine Claws Make Awesome Prosthetic Hand Upgrades For Kids


It’s pretty cool that people can now print up their own prosthetic hands, but one guy has made them even cooler with the addition of Wolverine claws. Aaron Brown volunteers with Enabling the Future and he created a set of Wolverine claws to work with 3D printed prosthetic hands. From TechCrunch:

“The Comic loving nerd inside of me (along with some Facebook friends) said there is no way I can make a Wolverine hand without CLAWS…so I modeled some in Sketchup the morning before the makerfaire, printed ‘em, spray painted ‘em silver and velcro’d ‘em on there. Turned out pretty darn cool!

Brown has now been building the Wolverine claws for kids from a shop he recently set up after debuting them at the Grand Rapids Maker Faire. Plans for the hands themselves can be downloaded for free at Thingiverse.
