Prosthetic Fishing Rod

nym | 02:40 PM


Robert Haag put together this captian hook style prosthetic arm that instead of a hook, has a line, and a hook, on a Spiderman fishing pole. It's an amazing project that he made for his son, and this video is way too cute.

This neat thing is part of the Open Prosthetics Project, which has the tag line "Prosthetics shouldn't cost an arm and a leg", is all about producing cheap and useful prosthetics. This is a great start!
