These Kids Used Design Skills to Turn Their Limb Differences into Superpowers [video]

What happens if we address a missing limb as a blank canvas rather than a disability? In June, eight kids with limb differences, from 8 to 17 years old, came together at Autodesk’s Pier 9 technology center and workshop space in San Francisco for a four-day program called Superhero Boost. The kids learned to use cutting-edge design and fabrication technologies – including 3D printing, robotics and AI – to create their own superpowers via personal wearable devices. Now in its second year, Superhero Boost was a KIDmob workshop supported by Autodesk, Google, and Born Just Right.
