ORLANDO, Fla — It was a meeting of super heroes that will make your day.

First, we have 7-year-old Alex.  An awesome boy, who knows how to wear a bow tie and was born with a partial right arm.

We also have Albert Manero, a college student who is working to get bionic arms to kids around the world.  Manero builds the arms and uses 3D printing.

And finally, we have a leading expert in bionics – Iron Man.  (aka Robert Downey Jr.)

The three got together as part of Colletive Project to try out Alex’s new arm and have a “progress report.”
