Ivan Owen is a puppet maker who began working on prosthetic fingers with a South African carpenter who had been in a finger-removing accident. The pair put their designs online and the YouTube comments were very supportive.

John Schull saw the duo's videos and created a map asking the YouTube commenters to volunteer their 3D Printers and to put themselves on the map. Thousands of people responded.
