Student Builds His Own Prosthetic Arm…with LEGOs!

Student Builds His Own Prosthetic Arm…with LEGOs!

The creativity of LEGO builders never ceases to amaze us, but David Aguilar is taking things to another level. David is a teenager living in Andorra who was born with a deformed right arm. However, David didn’t let that get in the way of his passion for LEGO. As a child, David built vehicles and toys with the world famous interconnecting blocks. From there, David went on to create his own LEGO prosthetic limb, and he hasn’t stopped improving upon it.

Great Big Story posted a profile about David and his LEGO arm. According to David, he first attempted to make a LEGO prosthetic when he was only nine years old. Unfortunately, the LEGO bricks available during that time simply weren’t strong enough to withstand the rigors of David’s daily life. Several years later, David used a LEGO helicopter kit to make a brand new arm out of much stronger material. It was such a success that David upgraded his LEGO arm with another model kit earlier this year. This time, he used the parts from a LEGO jet plane.

David’s engineering ability goes far beyond the surface of these builds. He also utilized a battery to act as a bicep muscle and rigged a fishing line within the arm to let him manipulate the limb beyond his body’s capabilities. Outside of his passion for LEGOs, David is also an EDM musician who goes by the name “Hand Solo.” You can check out his YouTube channel here.
