Watch Robert Downy Jr surprise a 7-year-old amputee with a bionic 'Iron Man' arm
Robert Downy Jr surprised a very lucky 7-year-old amputee with a 3D-printed bionic 'Iron Man' arm in one of the most adorable clips we've ever seen.
Alex Pring, who was born without his right arm, is (acording to RDJ) the "most dapper 7-year-old [he's] ever met," and loves all things superheroes, especially Iron Man.
Thanks to a Albert Manero, a medical engineering student at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and the good folks over at Limitless Solutions and Microsoft's The Collective Project, RDJ was able to fit little Alex with a perfect replica of the same arm Iron Man wears in the popular films, much to the youngster's delight who can't keep the smile off his face.
The incredibly sweet moment was captured in front of the cameras and the A-lister channelled Tony Stark the whole time, up until someone asks: 'Do you know who that is?'

Traditionally limbs of this similar calibre cost over $50,000 to make, this model reportedly cost $350.
