The arm was created by Enabling the Future, which has a chapter at Sienna College in Albany, New York. For its first project the Siena e-NABLE group made an Iron Man-themed hand for 5-year-old Jack Carder in Ohio.



In this case, nine-year-old Karissa Mitchell's (who was born without a right hand and most of her wrist) mother reached out to the group on campus, Siena College's director of marketing and communications said.

"She's watched the movie at least 100 times. We sing the songs all the time. We even have a karaoke machine that's 'Frozen'-themed," said Karissa's mother. The prosthetic was built using a 3-D printer and is comprised of 30 parts (it took near 30 hours to make).

To help Karissa achieve her dream of becoming a Disney princess, the team used "a pretty transparent ice blue color filament and added snowflakes to the forearm and her name with an Elsa crown on the cuff," said Alyx Gleason, the project lead and president of Siera e-NABLE. The arm also came with an Olaf LED light source.

Anyone who is in need of an arm or hand is encouraged to reach out to Siena e-NABLE.

Straight up, this is a bit of a buzzkill Disney.

UK alcohol awareness groups threw up a collective nope to this 'Frozen' inspired product line, with concern these bottles would encourage underage drinking.

Wouldn't that make more sense if the bottles had booze in them to begin with? These groups are grasping at straws here, and a strategic subsequent move here on the part of any alcohol distributor would be to make haste, and implement an actual 'Frozen' inspired line of champagne.

Thanks to the Disney Accelerator Program, some lucky kids are getting the chance to make their dreams come true.

UK-based company Open Bionics is developing these super awesome prosthetic limbs for kids based on Iron Man, Star Wars, and Frozen.

"They won't have to do boring physical therapy, they'll train to become heroes. They're not just getting medical devices, they're getting bionic hands inspired by their favorite characters," the company said in a statement.

Disney has provided consultation on the project and royalty-free licensing.

Working with Lucasfilm's ILMxLAB and Disney creative teams, the 3D-printed arms are based on on Iron Man's gauntlet, a lightsaber and Queen Elsa's hand.
