Stormtroopers surprise 7-year-old with 3D-printed prosthetic arm

Witness the power of the Force as Liam Porter, a 7-year-old boy from Augusta, GA who needs a new arm, receives a heartwarming surprise.

The crowd consisted of stormtroopers, clone troopers, and other members of the 501st Legion's Georgia Garrison, an international Star Wars costuming organization composed of volunteers who attend charity events, visit sick children in hospitals, and provide event security for Star Wars celebrities.

The prosthetic arm was created by 3D-printing enthusiast John Peterson and an online community for 3D-printing replace limbs, enablingthefuture.org. The arm took three months to build and cost about $300 to make.
