Going out on a Bionic Limb, with Joel Gibbard

But what about a third category that captures the fun and imagination of children while still meeting functional requirements? That’s where Open Bionics comes in, founded by Joel Gibbard and Samantha Payne. Through partnerships with Disney and Lucasfilms, Open Bionics has created a line of cool and inspiring prosthetic limbs. Joel Gibbard, a robotics graduate from the University of Plymouth, UK, co-founded Open Bionics with the goal of revolutionizing the industry with accessible and advanced bionic arms.
