Impressive. But he says he built his arm by following patents he found on-line. I just hope he checked to see what the status of those patents are, like whether they are still in effect or have expired. It would be a major downer if in another year or so, he has something generally usable, and some lawyer decides to sue for the rights and/or licensing fees.

Important and inspriring
The last line summed it all up so that it gave us a universal message," It doesn't matter if it's a bike or an arm OR YOUR LIFE. If you can take it apart , if oyu can understand it, you can make it better." "Im atah ma'amin shey'cholim lekalkel ta'amin sheyecholim letaken!" Now seize the day!

TO Anonymous who wants to know the Hebrew
It is a Chassidic saying that parallels the message very closely: "If you believe that it is possible to break things, you must believe it is possible to fix things!!" A very encouraging way to think.
