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.

Latest Analysis
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
