Aaron Brown, one of the organization’s volunteers, had the idea to attach claws to a 3D-printed prosthetic hand he had made for a child to make it look like Wolverine’s fist from the popular X-Men series.

The plans for the prosthetic hand that he printed were provided by E-Nabling The Future, which is formed by engineers, tinkerers, 3D-printing enthusiasts, physical therapists, designers, and anyone else who is interested in volunteering to help develop and create practical and low-cost prosthetic limbs for children. Other creative hands from the organization include an Iron Man hand and a light-up hand.
