Amazing: Boy gets prosthetic hand made by 3D printer

bitshare:

imageI’m not a mushy person, but after seeing this story, my eyes swelled up with joy. This is technology at it’s greatest, and is a must see for everyone.

Paul McCarthy began searching for an inexpensive yet functional prosthetic hand for his son Leon, who was born without fingers on one of his hands. McCarthy came across a video online with detailed instructions on how to use a 3D printer to make a prosthetic hand for his son.

Printing at Oxford University Press in the 1920s: The bindery
After printing, the sheets went to the bindery. The bindery at OUP had a ‘Men’s Section’ and a ‘Girls’ Section’, both of which can be seen here.
These clips are from a silent film made in 1925 by the Federation of British Industry, illustrating industrial life and including the work of Oxford University Press. See more video clips on our Tumblr OUP Archive stream to learn about the History of Oxford University Press. OUP’s Archive Department collects, catalogues, and preserves all material of long-term importance associated with the Press’s commercial and social activities in Britain, from the 17th century to the present day.

Thumb-nail book
Meet the Golden Alphabet Book, a very rare miniature book from 1846 that teaches parents how to handle their children (in only 126 pages). It also contains rhymes, perhaps meant for reading by the kids themselves. Each letter is presented in a decorated woodcut, and the object measures no more than 3/4 by 3/4 inch (or 18x18mm), about the size of a thumb nail. Books are not often this small, and you can see why: not much text fits on the page, which is also exceedingly difficult to flip. Still, it’s quite simply charming - Watch that avenue now! - and it put a big smile on my face.

YELP IT

From Karen C. 5/1/2013

"Once again Copymat saves the day. I had two prints I needed done for my gallery show. Why I decided to try a new printing co is beyond me. The royally screwed up my pics. I was so frustrated. In comes Copymat like a white knight!  I brought my stuff in and they did my order in an hour. It came out perfect. And they charged me almost 50 percent less than the other printer!  Copymat. I will never leave you again. If you need an amazing printing co these guys are the people to see."

Yelp Review

From stan I.

The prices are excellent and the staff is friendly. However, the process could be explained a bit more since the computers and printers have a “unique” relationship.

Despite my temporary confusion the first time I went, I would claim it’s among the best especially for the price.
