3D Printing Advanced Prosthetics
At 18, Easton founded his own company, Unlimited Tomorrow, Inc (UnlimitedTomorrow.com). They are developing a new concept of an exoskeleton to help paraplegics walk again, have filled patents and are pursuing FDA approval. The company is also creating advanced open source robotic arms that can be used from prosthetics to a STEM learning platform. Both of these products are considered disruptive by the way they impact multiple industries with a better alternative. Unlimited Tomorrow's philosophy is to keep the user first and to give extreme technology at an affordable price.
Here is a link to a recent documentary that puts everything in perspective:
I am raising money to expand our resources which includes more 3d printers, material development, manpower, and testing equipment. This will all help contribute to getting this technology to the people who really need it. We will be keep this process personal and highlight individuals along the way.

Any body with this skill could make millions of dollars in this industry, instead you chose to share it with humanity and put a very low cost. Everybody wants to do something good but noone seems to take action. Your reward will be given by God by making so many people happy and hopefull. I cannot thank you enough. I am %100 sure you will create more for other body parts. Our prayers are with you!
Wishing you all the best and all the luck in the world!!! I know my friend Teddy made a contribution to your fund earlier -- He needs help too, but wears his heart on his sleeve and is very compassionate. Maybe you could check out his campaign? Thanks!! Love and Peace.
After seeing a story on the Albuquerque news about this amazing young man, I tried several times to post this on my facebook timeline without success. Is there a logistical problem on your end?
Wow! Ethan, I'm sure you are aware of how amazing this technology is and that you without a doubt is going to change the lives of millions. I am a congenital Right BE amputee and wore a prosthesis from 6 months old until 13 years old. I found that the few things my prosthesis helped me do did not out weigh the loss in Range Of Motion and the discomfort of carrying around a 5 pound Myoelectric prosthesis. I am a Nurse in Alabama and have had to over come a lot of limitations in my chosen field and unfortunately one is not being able to wear my prosthesis at all. The technology avalible is not functional. Your invention could change that. My husband is also a Right BE amputee as a result of a motor cycle accident. He works in Structural Engeeniering and wears a prosthetic hook he struggles with fit as well as range of motion.. We are lucky in that we have been able to adapt. But not without years of struggle as well as trial and error. Future amputees will be spared this struggle because of you. I cannot express how amazing your invention is, and even for myself and my husband as "functioning amputees" gives tremendous that future technology will make life easier.
This is exactly what my 48 yr. old son needs, arm and hand. I have started a gofundme for him as he can't get good employment since he only has one hand. His left arm was lost in a roll over accident.
