Texas Kindergartner Gets 3D Printed Prosthetic Hand


A Texas kindergartner is feeling like Iron Man thanks to a new prosthetic hand that was created by a 3D printer.

Keith Harris, 5, got to show off his new high-tech hand Friday as he exchanged high-fives with classmates at Mossman Elementary School in the Houston suburb of League City.

“When I first got my hand I thought it would be difficult for me to do stuff with it,” Keith told KPRC-TV in Houston. “I love it.”

The boy was born with a deformed right hand caused by a rare condition called symbrachydactyly.

Keith was all smiles in a T-shirt that read, “Ten Fingers are Overrated” as he made a fist with his new mechanical hand. “It’s not that hard,” he told the station.

Kim Harris said her son has come out of his shell with the new hand.
