IamA 17 year old, Easton LaChappelle, robotics engineer who created a mind controlled 3d printed robotic arm that shook the hand of the President not to long ago! AMA!
My short bio: Robotics is the future! I decided to teach myself electronics, programming and mechanics when I was 14 and have not let anything stop me! I worked at NASA over the summer on the Robonaut project and have traveled the world doing talks talking about curiosity and how to achieve your dreams. This technology has a huge impact on the prosthetics industry just because there are so many problems with current prosthetics and the cost is outrageous! I am heavily involved with an emerging tv show that makes the perfect platform to show the world that kids are moving in the right direction (http://memeni.com/magicmakers) Just recently I have started building an exoskeleton, move aside Tony Stark!
