An adorable four-year-old lad has had a life-long dream come true this Christmas after gaining a bionic hand – so he can now excitedly rip open his presents.
Brooklyn Brentnall-Croydon is set for a magical Christmas after receiving a 3D-printed Iron Man hand to be just like his idol Tony Stark.
The one-handed youngster’s family, from Doncaster, had appealed to any tech boffins who could create an artificial hand for Brooklyn after the youngster had asked for Santa for a bike. But his dreams came true just in time for Christmas after a technology school came to the rescue of the family’s social media plea.
The tech marvel opens and closes when Brooklyn flexes his wrist – meaning he can shred through Santa’s presents just like his school friends.
But the delighted youngster is awaiting the prospect of Father Christmas bringing him a bike – so he can ride for the first time.
