Nicholas Huchet at the IIT Bombay TechFest – 2nd to 4th January 2015
Nicholas Huchet is invited to the IIT Bombay TechFest that is to take place from 2nd to 4th January 2015
Nicholas Huchet, a young resident of the city of Rennes, is an amputee who lost his right arm in a work accident 12 years ago. Anxious to overcome this shortcoming, he met the Labfab based in his city. This meeting gave birth to the Bionico project that created an artificial bionic prosthesis using 3D print technology with the help of the design specifications made available in open source format by Gaël Langevin, the creator of the robot InMoov.
Nicholas Huchet is invited to the IIT Bombay TechFest that is to take place from 2nd to 4th January 2015 (the Fest hosted 135 000 visitors in 2014). He will be there along with Gaël Langevin and Marc Aderghal, documentary filmmaker.
