e-NABLE - volunteers offer prosthetic hands made for children by 3D printers

RIT Researcher Jon Schull has connected thousands of volunteers around the globe to make super affordable prosthetic hands wherever they are needed. e-NABLE volunteers are connected through the internet, and donate their time and the use of 3D printers to print and assemble the movable plastic hands. See: http://enablingthefuture.org/ for info Do you need a hand or want to get involved in making them? Visit this link: http://enablingthefuture.org/get-involved/ Unlike established prosthetic hands, which can cost as much as $45,000, these hands can be produced for a cost of about $50. The mechanical hands will not replace the sophisticated prosthesis, but they can be a useful alternative in many situations - especially when cost is a factor. They are particularly helpful for children who may need a series of replacement hands as they grow. Also, because they are mechanical instead of electronic they provide healthy exercise for the arm they are used on.

Humans vs. Zombies at RIT

Humans vs. Zombies at RIT

It's a zombie apocalypse at RIT! Each Fall a week-long Zombie vs. Humans game is held at RIT. It is normally the biggest RIT HvZ game of the year. The massive campus-wide game of tag involves roughly 800 students. According to organizers, HvZ is the largest club on campus. Humans wear arm-bands and carry Nerf Blasters or "sock grenades" to protect themselves from zombie contagion... at least until they get tagged by "zombies" ... and join the zombie horde in chasing the remaining "humans". Zombies can be identified by their headbands. Few humans make it to the heavily defended "extraction points" at the end of the game. HvZ is a great way to meet new people, explore the campus, learn the tunnels (good prep for winter) and get some serious exercise! The game is only played outdoors - buildings, tunnels and vehicles are "safe". It is played at night as well and organizers devise missions that add to multiple story-lines. The RIT HvZ club also competes at exhibition games with and against other schools in this growing social sport.
