North Texas Boy Given a Chance to Play Like a Normal Kid

Arlington, TX -

A little North Texas boy will get to live his life and be a kid -- just the way it's meant to be. All thanks to someone who just happened to hear his story. At the University of Texas at Arlington's "Fab Lab," 8 year old Garrett Clark's story touched Adam Williams' heart. Adam designed and built a 3D printed arm for Garrett after his dad, an associate professor at the university, heard about the lab's possibilities. Recently, Garrett was fitted with a newer, custom-built arm
 and now -- there's already a list of things he can't wait to try. With the new custom arm -- garret shined his built-in laser and flashlight, high-fived his brother -- and even beat his mom in arm wrestling. In order to make it easier for garret to swim -- the team is working on flippers,  they are still in the prototype phase, but the eventual goal is to attach them to Garrett's actual arm to help him in the water.
