Albert Manero: Making 3D printed limbs

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 13 July 2016

Albert Manero is taking 3-D printing to a whole new level.

His non profit organisation Limbitless Solutions, makes personalised bionic limbs for children born without them, or who have lost them through injury or disease - all made thanks to 3D printing, which means they can be made at a fraction of the cost.

Albert Manero is a doctoral student in mechanical engineering at the University of Central Florida - and is in Dunedin as a guest of the Science Festival.

He is our guest on Bookmarks, and shares some of the music, art, books and films that have inspired and entertained him.
