Project Daniel

Daniel Omar lost both his arms in a brutal bomb attack. He is one of many in South Sudan to suffer a similar fate. But Daniel counts himself lucky because he is also the beneficiary of a project inspired by his story. When he heard about Daniel, the entrepreneur, Mick Ebeling, launched Project Daniel - a project to use affordable 3D printing to print Daniel a prosthetic arm. Click talks to Mick Ebeling about the use of this technology to provide arms for amputees, and about his organisation, Not Impossible Labs.

Ten musicians gathered at the end of last month at the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary College in the east end of London, to give a premiere performance on an entirely new digital instrument. But when Roland Pease arrived, expecting the latest in digital sophistication, he found what had been put together was little more than a speaker cube, with a little extra electronics thrown in. Roland Pease reports on an intriguing new take on cubism.
