Andorran teen David Aguilar was always obsessed with Lego, and he took that obsession and made something ridiculously cool with it. Born with a deformed right arm, Aguilar began working on his first Lego-prosthetic arm when he was 9 years old, and has been perfecting the design ever since. His MK7 design is strong enough that he can do push ups with it, and he has created a battery powered pulley system which acts a bicep to give him the full range of movement that he needs. Having a home made bionic arm has stemmed any bullying or name calling he may have received in the past and he is now one of the coolest guys in his school, because who wouldn’t want a robot hand right?
