The Open Hand Project is developing advanced prosthetic hands to be accessible and affordable, aiming to be under $1000. It’s doing this through an open hardware model (open source plans and production by 3D printers) and by raising money through a crowdfunder. It’s £15,000 short of the goal with only 4 days to go – I’ve contributed, and I’d love to see it go ahead.

Update: Success! They hit their target.
