IKO Creative Prosthetic System

2016 Winner for User Experience 2016 Honorable Mention for Social Good

Navigating the world with a disability can be a physical and emotional challenge for kids. The IKO Creative Prosthetic System turns artificial body parts into Inspector Gadget-style imagination machines that transcend traditional uses with all kinds of attachments. Hand? Sure! Space ship? Why not! Blender? Yeah! This playful approach empowers little creatives to embrace the relationship between their bodies and the tools that help them live comfortably and confidently. By combining robotics, programming, and prototyping with Lego Mindstorms, IKO provides a learning experience for the young user, and allows them to share that knowledge with their peers.
