Robert Downey Jr. and Albert Manero, a #CollectiveProject student who founded Limbitless, surprised young Alex Pring with a new bionic 3D printed arm at no cost to the family.
This just hit Downey’s official Twitter feed this morning:

Albert Manero founded the volunteer group Limbitless Solutions to build affordable, bionic, 3D-printed arms, in which he makes the designs available to others for free. Manero and the Limbitless team are featured in The Collective Project, a look at students working together to improve the world. Empowered by Microsoft’s OneNote, the project celebrates the journey of ideas into action, with ways for people to learn more and get involved. Robert Downey Jr. got involved in this project and presented the bionic 3D printed arm to Alex. Manero had been working with Alex for some time going through iterations of the design for his new arm.
