I am a Korean living in Busan, Korea.
I have seen your InMoov videos on YouTube and would like to make one for my dear friend
who lost his right hand and also his right wrist due to a terrible car accident long time ago.
(His right arm is OK, though.)
Your InMoove prosthetic seems to work fairly well for my friend except the fact that it
would be too long for my friend since he lost his hand and about 2 inches above his
wrist. It would be great if the electronic parts (motors and so on) can be squeezed
inside the 2" long space. (Maybe too small?)
I also want to add a brain control interface, if possible. Yes, I saw your Mind Flex headset
videos but I want to use a better solution than that even if it costs somewhat more. Do
you know any alternative solution to the Mind Flex headset? (I don't think he would wear
such a headset all the time!)
If not feasible, I might just try to use a prosthetic with no electronic parts. If you have
not yet watched the following videos, please take a look at them:

3D Printing in Animatronics: Easton LaChappelle
I plan to buy or build a 3D printer for this purpose and, if possible, I hope you to help me
make a prosthetic for him since I do not know much about 3D printing especially with
respect to electronics needed to make it.
If I can make one for him, I would love to do the same thing for other Koreans (in particular,
for those kids with Amniotic Band Syndrome).
