Rayden Kahae, born without fingers on his right hand due to amniotic band syndrome, has been given a chance to use it! The now 3-year-old young boy got out of the difficult situation with assistance from an Iron Man hand.

Despite the kid’s early misfortune, things seem to be working out pretty well for him right now. The Hawaii-based kid is a fan of Iron Man, so a charity collected money to create a prosthetic hand for him, straight from the superhero’s costume. According to his family, he was really excited in the weeks leading up to his new hand's arrival, and asked about it on a daily basis. Rayden is still learning how to use it properly, but the teasing at school is no longer an issue, since he’s got the coolest hand ever.

“‘Almost daily Rayden would ask if his Iron Man hand had arrived in the mail. Every box he saw us carry into the house, he immediately thought it was his Iron Man hand," his grandmother said. “The evening the box came in, mom, dad and siblings all surrounded Rayden in anticipation of him opening the box.”

The charity responsible for little Kahae's Iron Man-inspired prosthetic part is called E-Nabling the Future. The ones behind it like to call it a “network of passionate volunteers using 3D printing to give the world a ‘helping hand’”.

Take a look at young Rayden and his joy for the new hand.
