Last month a video was shared with me about this young man from Colorado named Easton LaChappelle who during high school taught himself programming and electronics because he was inspired to make something cool; A robot hand that could be controlled with a glove. At a science fair he met a young girl who had a prosthetic arm that he learned cost about $80,000. His hobby of cool became a mission. Through connections over the internet, learning 3D CAD modelling he kept persisting and iterating using all the methods he could as fast as he could. The evolution over such a short time is awe inspiring.
Easton is really an inspiration. He’s 19 and lives a life of curiosity and selflessness outside boundaries. Enjoy!
The video I originally watched about all this was shared on Facebook shared by a friend. He makes a very special announcement at the end of it. Easton’s company that he founded at age 17 is called Unlimited Tomorrow.
