    Abstract:

    e-NABLE is an online community that designs, customizes, fabricates, and disseminates 3D-printed prosthetic hands and arms for free. E-NABLE extends the methods and philosophies of Open Source software to hardware, assistive technology development, and human resources. I'll tell the story of this remarkable community, and discuss emerging trends and opportunities for academic research and trans-academic collaboration.
