These prosthetics in a box comprise a modular kit that makes it possible for someone to construct affordable and functional limb replacements. From Not Impossible Labs and Mike Ebeling's impact technology design space, the lightweight box -- it weights just two to three pounds -- will take a person with only minimal training 2 hours to build a prosthetic limb.

Not Impossible as an organization is on a mission to change the world by supplying low cost technology on an open source DIY platform. Projects like the prosthetics in a box also facilitate collaboration between creatives, hackers and makers as they collectively crowdsource solutions to pressing societal problems, like providing access to health care in developing communities.
