Here, the previously relevant and important terrain of pragmatic solutions towards prosthetics are totally abandoned. Symbolism has a new level: a symbolic arm now is "handed" over by the actor that plays that "bionic" uber engineer that "built" these. Really and more pragmatically, the hand is more like a Potemkin village of a real prosthesis - but you cannot have everything these days. The thing is termed "miracle". Read up on the aspects of symbolism versus realism [link] when you find time though. The boy now has just left life as it was, and become an actor in his own life. A real life and a possible simulans (prosthetic arm) now have been replaced with a simulacrum (the "Iron Man" prosthetic does not provide a "map" to any "real" item). The slogan is "Dream Big Dreams" (and my add-on is, "but be careful with all that plastic, it may break before you know it").

The looks of the hand are great though. Best thing since I came out with the official Red Hand in 2009 ; )

Unbelievable! Great people involved there though. Robert Downey Jr. could not have done a better thing. Maybe Touch Bionics or RSL Steeper want to get involved with "Stark Industries" as well at some point.

What did Robert Downey Jr. do really?
