Meet David Aguilar, a teenage amputee who built a prosthetic arm from Lego blocks
In more news about creative artisans, YEN News previously reported that David Aguilar is the Spanish teenager who can build anything with Lego. The talented young man has made history by creating the world’s first working robotic prosthetic arm using only the colourful building materials.
“I can do push ups with this thing. It’s quite strong,” said the 19-year-old.
Born with the Poland Syndrome birth defect, Aguilar has shared how he built himself a prosthetic right arm from Lego bricks back in 2019 and 2018. As his right arm never fully developed and he has some difficulty it, the passionate engineer has been working on the concept ever since he was nine years old, You magazine reports.
Today, Aguilar is well-known for building with Lego bricks, being a 2017 Guinness World record holder and the 2020 Lego Masters France winner, Brick Fanatics reports.
The brainy young man has been studying bio-engineering at the International University of Catalonia and hopes to use his passion to help others one day.
