Microsoft has teamed with Limbitless Solutions to provide children with the option of a Halo-themed prosthetic.
The 3D printed bionic arm prosthetics are designed to look like the Mjolnir Powered Assault Armour worn by Master Chief and other Spartans. 343 and Limbitless have worked together to provide children with two different bionic arms — one patterned like Master Chief’s iconic Mk. IV armour, and another multiplayer variant that will allow a child the opportunity to pick a unique colour scheme. Red versus blue, anyone?
“Limbitless Solutions is a non-profit organization that creates an affordable option for prosthetic-limb devices for children. Using rapid prototyping technologies ‑ 3D printing specifically ‑ prosthetic arms that are fully functional and capable of gripping objects and various gestures are created and fitted to children at a fraction of the cost compared to other prosthetics on the market,” 343 Industries said of its new partner. “The incredible and dedicated team over at Limbitless began in 2014 as a group of University of Central Florida students who wanted to help a family whose son was born without most of his right arm, and since Limbitless has grown to a full-time operation based at UCF in Orlando, Fla.”
The bionic arms should be available in early 2019. For more on Limbitless Solutions, head here or check out the video below.
Halo Infinite is the next game in the franchise, announced by 343 Industries at E3 this year.
