Cinduckerella’s Glass Slipper

Bring forth the glass 3D-model slipper! This is Buttercup, who lives at the Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary. Buttercup was born with only one proper foot. But the fairy godpeeps at NovaCopy came to the rescue with la très nouveau slippere’ made just for Buttercup! And the rest, they say, will be fairy tale prosthetic prosh-thetic history.

Via CNN. Also, Buttercup’s on FB. Reminds you of Winter the dolphin, eh?

    He started off life on the Right Foot by buying that Aflac Insurance several years ago. Last week he got in a Quack Up, but he will have all the money he needs to pay his medical bills and living expenses. His retirement nest egg won’t have to be touched until it is ready to hatch in 2063.

  4. Nice… 🙂

  5. It’s nice to read good stories about hoomins helping our anipals.

    First the robo-hands for kids with amniotic band syndrome, now this. 3D printing is doing great things for the world of prosthetics. Who saw that one coming?

    The duck seems to approve!
