Nathan is an amazing young man, not just for his technolocal achievements but for the compassion that drives them. He is also pioneering an exciting development in prosthetics that is sure to bless many as the technology matures. This article is exciting on so many levels - seeing a young scientist in the upcoming generation in action, the technological advances being pursued to benefit the quality of life, and the altruism being exhibited that serves as a model to his generation and to the world. Well done, Nathan!

Well said, Nancy.

I hope there's a follow up on the STEM center he opens in his hometown.  The projects that come out of that could be amazing.

Thanks, Nancy, I agree, and it was really cool to talk to Shiva and here the enthusiasm in his voice as he described the technology and his reason for developing it. He certainly is a bright young man who already has contributed and will continue to contribute a lot to the world of engineering.

Hi, a2, if you click on the link to the microMedic competition there is a PDF technical paper that provides more details about the arm that I assume Shiva provided for the contest.

I will try to keep up with Shiva to find out about that, NadineJ. How amazing that at such a young age, he has the interest and generosity to use his prize money for something like that. I found that quite inspiring.

Elizabeth is there an any chance to her the story by his own voice? If so it will be a great experience.
