Introducing Gertrude the Octopus. She has a sordid past (used to attack ships, sailboats, submarines…pretty much anything that got in her way), but she is a changed octopus. She now leads underwater tours. Good girl. Gertrude is approximately 11 inches high (including her legs)- the perfect height to perform in a finger puppet play, adorn a decorative tree branch, or sit quietly wherever you choose to place her.

Evan Kuester, like many students, found his course work to be less than inspiring. However, he did have access to some really cool tools, such as a large 3D printer that started his mind wandering. Evan had noticed a fellow student on campus a few times. The thing that he noticed was that she had no left hand. Knowing that he had a 3d printer at his disposal, Evan found the inspiration he needed to embark on something wonderful. One day he worked up the nerve to simply walk up and introduce himself and propose an idea: Why not 3D print an aesthetically pleasing prosthetic? From that point forward, Evan and Ivania Castillo have been friends. (via Gorgeous 3D printed Prosthetic Born of Boredom | MAKE)
