A 3-year-old boy from Hawaii was born without fingers on his right hand, but was given a life-changing gift.

Rayden Kahae was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome (ABS). He knew he was different, so he wanted an Iron Man hand.

Well, he got his wish.

With the help of a 3D printer, a company called E-Nable created him a new hand.

Normally, a prosthetic hand could cost about $40,000. But, this mechanical body-powered hand costs only about $50 to build.

Better yet – the hand will be able to be refitted as he gets older.
