The curators of the exhibition will talk about new possibilities that the combination of 3D printing, electronics and open source solutions bring.

The exhibition presents the project myhand, aimed at developing a system of printed 3D parametric prostheses which combine some of the features of what's available in the market today with the very unusual needs of their users. They aim to facilitate such passions or interests like, for example, sports. They are designed with the additional goal of being affordable.

As part of the exhibition, we will present specific problems and solutions in the field of prosthetics as well as the results of the first stage of the myhand project.
