A UK-based company is looking to some well-known properties to make prosthetic hands more appealing to children, and it's getting some real help from Disney. Open Bionics is a start-up focused on making low-cost 3D-printed prosthetics, and as part of Disney's Techstars Accelerator program, it's getting royalty-free licenses to create prosthetics modeled off Iron Man, Elsa from Frozen, and a glowing, buzzing "lightsaber hand" calling back to the Star Wars universe.
