Electrical and Computer Engineering students Charles Jesclard, Caden Jones, Mathew Reck, and Randal Aymond, demonstrate an economical prosthetic arm for the audience.

In the audience were members of the faculty, the student body, and interested industry representatives.

The arm is made more economical because the majority of its structural components were 3D printed.

Dr. Darby, the student's professor states that this project represents a significant step toward practical and economical prosthetic devices for patients in need.

"I am happy that not only are my students learning a great deal in doing projects of this kind, e.g. robotics, etc., but also they are doing a service to society, in the process. It just make me feel real good."
