    The Superhero Cyborgs Have Arrived!

    Published on - January 15, 2016 by sarahorourke76


    What happens if we address a missing limb as a blank canvas rather than a disability? Kids are some of the most creative folks around. At Superhero Cyborgs 2.0, kids will create their own superpowers via personal wearable devices - a potential alternative to their upper limb prosthetic.

    Follow along with the Superhero Cyborgs, as they learn about 3D modeling and digital fabrication, such as 3D printing, and will be exposed to the process of designing and bringing an idea into the world. All of the heros may be partnered with a professional designer/engineer for further collaboration and development of their projects after the workshop. Participants will work alongside professional designers and engineers in Autodesk's state-of-the-art shops to envision and prototype their own personal wearable devices.

    Autodesk is so excited to host KidMob and the Superhero Cyborgs at Pier 9 in San Francisco for this event! We can't wait to see them explore Tinkercad and Fusion 360 to start designing! We are calling on the Tinkercad community to follow us on our social media channels for the next five days. Send us tweets of support, tips on design and more!

    If you are an educator or university student don't forget to learn more about Autodesk's commitment to education!
