Having to use a prosthetic limb can be difficult, but what if it made you look like your favorite video game character? According to a recent article from The Verge, Microsoft’s 343 Industries has teamed up with Limbitless Solutions, a non-profit dedicated to empowering children through creative 3D-printed prosthetics, to create prosthetic arms in the style of Halo characters.

The prosthetic arms are fully functional with the capability to grip objects through EMG sensors. The product lineup already includes an Iron Man arm, and will add two Halo-themed options including a recreation of Master Chief’s Mark VI gauntlet in green, and a “multiplayer” version that’s customizable with different colors. Perhaps the best part is that the limbs are donated free of charge.
