Robert Downey Jr. gives 7-year-old bionic Iron Man arm


In the video above, watch the moving moment when 7-year-old Alex walks into a room to find actor Robert Downey Jr., as his “Iron Man” alter ego, waiting for him. Downey was there to present Alex with a 3D-printed bionic arm, which was designed by Albert Manero, a doctoral student in mechanical engineering at the University of Central Florida. Manero is the senior director of Limbitless Solutions, a volunteer organization that designs open-source 3D-printed limbs and donates them to children in need. Faith in humanity restored!
