F1 team helps boy get bionic hand.
Here's a nice story happened to a teenager of 14. Matthew James was born without his left hand, which of course handicaps for tying shoelaces, catching objects ... etc.
So he took his best pen and wrote a letter to the Mercedes F1 team to ask them 57 000 $ sponsorship so he can buy a bionic hand.
Apparently, the letter has touched the people at Mercedes (or given the right opportunity in the marketing department) that rather than spinning 57 000 $ to Matthew, they collected money from sponsors and volunteers of the team and worked hand in hand with the company Touch Bionics to offer what is currently one of the prosthetic hand the most advanced in the world.
The i-LIMB Pulse is equipped with lithium batteries, 2 electrodes that can communicate with the arm and a Bluetooth module for setting via a computer.
-It really rolls, finally, the high-end Mercedes electronic hands. -
