3D Printed Bionic Arm for Star Wars Fashion Show

Prior to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Star Wars: Force For Change charity produced a fashion collection with all of the original designs being auctioned off to benefit UK children’s hospital Great Ormond Street Hospital. Some of the UK-based designers that contributed looks to the charitable auction were Agi & Sam, Bobby Abley, Christopher Ræburn, JW Anderson, Nasir Mazhar, Peter Pilotto, Phoebe English, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Thomas Tait.
As part of the show, Open Bionics created a 3D printed bionic arm with LED lights to complement a black jumpsuit covered in more than 10,000 Swarovski crystals, designed by Claire Barrow and worn by Grace Mandeville.
“The hand has individual finger movements – you can point and pinch and move each one independently from each other to make different grip patterns. As Grace Mandeville doesn’t have a forearm, we placed myoelectric sensors on her deltoid muscles on her shoulders to control it,” explained Open Bionics CEO Joel Gibbard.
