About the solution

After an encounter with a 7-year-old girl at a science fair whose prosthetic arm cost $80,000 (and would need to be replaced when she outgrew it), LaChappelle was inspired to turn his prototype into a practical and affordable one.
At 18, Easton founded his own company, Unlimited Tomorrow, Inc (UnlimitedTomorrow.com). They are developing a new concept of an exoskeleton to help paraplegics walk again, have filled patents and are pursuing FDA approval. The company is also creating advanced open source robotic arms that can be used from prosthetics to a STEM learning platform. Both of these products are considered disruptive by the way they impact multiple industries with a better alternative. Unlimited Tomorrow's philosophy is to keep the user first and to give extreme technology at an affordable price.

Easton LaChappelle, from USA, has been taking apart things since he was a child and is now changing industries. At 14, he made his first robotic hand out of LEGOs, fishing wire and electrical tubing. With his gradual improvement, the hand turned into an arm and advanced to a 3D-printed brain-powered invention that he could operate with his mind.
