Iron Man Power Suit #3 | Casting Armour Pieces | James Bruton



This video shows how I made a my Iron Man suit pieces.

The biggest challenge making your own Iron Man power suit – that you can actually wear! – is how much detail. Every expects it to look accurate in terms of colour and shaping, and if you’re going to get inside it latches, strapping and so on is a must but… what else? Do you motorise the faceplate? How much lighting and depth do you give the unibeam? What kind of flexibility and motion do the knees, knuckles and neck need? Well, hopefully you’ll agree I went all out on this Iron Man build. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

3d printed prosthetics: Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) delivers bionic



A team of engineering students, led by Albert Manero at the University of Central Florida, are on a mission to literally give a helping hand to children with missing limbs.

Click here to donate to Limbitless Solutions: http://www.limbitless-solutions.org/

Robert Downey Jr. teamed up with Limbitless Solutions and Microsoft’s #Collective Project to deliver a specially 3D-printed limb to Alex Mead, a 7-year-old boy born with an underdeveloped right arm.

Inspired by a story about a South African who printed a hand, Manero was driving when came up with the idea to help kids in need.

He teamed up with friends and colleagues to create prosthetic limbs with a 3D printer.

After the printing is finished, the arm is then assembled by girl scouts, boy scouts or anyone else willing to lend a hand. (pun intended)

Add on a muscle sensor, an Arduino Micro, an Aircraft servo, toss in a battery, and boy you got yourself an bionic arm.

A new limb costs just $350 for the materials—less than 1% of the normal market price of $40,000.

And if you’re looking to print one yourself, Manero has shared the template and all the instructions on the 3d printing site Thingiverse.

Amie’s Iron Man Costume



Aime wanted to make things explode with her Iron Man costume, just like in the movies. We put some ATOMS together to make that happen.
