When Faith Lennox was nine months old, she lost her left hand. Now at age seven, she’s getting one custom made by a 3D printer. It’s called a ‘robohand’. She got to pick the colors and watch the printing process firsthand at Build It Workspace, a 3D printer studio in California

Build It’s Mark Lengsfeld thinks the technology will revolutionize prosthetics, especially in children who outgrow prosthetic limbs or have trouble using them due to size and weight.

from SPC Forecast Products March 31, 2015 at 10:25PM br> MD 0172 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 11… FOR PARTS OF WRN/CENTRAL AND SRN OK

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0172
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0924 PM CDT TUE MAR 31 2015

AREAS AFFECTED…PARTS OF WRN/CENTRAL AND SRN OK

CONCERNING…SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 11…

VALID 010224Z – 010330Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 11
CONTINUES.

SUMMARY…A NEW WW WILL LIKELY BE NEEDED ACROSS WRN/CENTRAL AND SRN
OK FOR A CONTINUED THREAT OF SEVERE STORMS THROUGH THE LATE EVENING
TO THE EARLY OVERNIGHT HOURS. LARGE HAIL AND STRONG/DAMAGING WIND
GUSTS WILL BE THE PRIMARY THREATS.

DISCUSSION…OBJECTIVE ANALYSES INDICATED AN INCREASE IN
SURFACE-BASED INHIBITION. HOWEVER…A STRENGTHENING SLY LLJ ACROSS
WRN/CENTRAL TX THROUGH WRN/CENTRAL OK SHOULD FURTHER ENHANCE
LOW-LEVEL WAA INTO THE TWO ONGOING STORM CLUSTERS…1/ MOVING EWD
EITHER SIDE OF THE RED RIVER IN SWRN OK AND ADJACENT WRN N TX…AND
2/ MOVING ESEWD THROUGH WEST-CENTRAL OK. RADAR IMAGERY SHOWED A
WELL DEFINED MCV ATTENDANT TO THE CLUSTER OF STORMS IN WEST-CENTRAL
OK. ALTHOUGH NOT EASILY DISCERNIBLE IN MOISTURE-CHANNEL IMAGERY…
18Z NAM/GFS SUGGEST A WEAK MIDLEVEL IMPULSE TRACKING INTO CENTRAL OK
TONIGHT. ASCENT ATTENDANT TO THIS FEATURE WILL AID IN AUGMENTING
UPDRAFTS FOR ADDITIONAL TSTM DEVELOPMENT AND UPSCALE GROWTH. STORMS
SHOULD TEND TO REMAIN MORE ISOLATED ACROSS ERN OK. RESIDUAL
MODERATE INSTABILITY ACROSS MUCH OF THE SRN TWO-THIRDS OF OK AND
EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR AROUND 30 KT SUGGESTS A CONTINUED THREAT FOR
SEVERE STORMS WILL EXTEND BEYOND 03Z.
