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.

They ask for his arm back!

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!

Your comment

is great. I wish I spoke Hebrew so that I could fully understand all of it.

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.
