Description

Albert Manero foresaw Limbitless Solutions as one part storytelling and one part engineering.  To realize his vision, he overhauled the STEM disciplines to include art and aesthetics. STEAM is an ethos for the modern age- in the case of Limbitless, through innovation in plastics and additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, the Limbitless team artfully injects stunning design into the process, creating customizable prosthetics- like the replica of Iron Man’s bionic arm that was one little boy’s incredible wish come true.  Equal parts design manifesto and engineering summit, this presentation on STEAM and its merits and application will enchant audiences into rethinking the role of science and technology in everyday lives.
