‘Creativity is key to innovation. It’s up to you to use it as a tool’
Easton takes us through his journey from teen hobbyist to the founder of Unlimited Tomorrow by age 19; a company developing prosthetic limbs, powered by facial expression, muscle detectors and brain waves. Using 3D printing technology, Easton has been able to produce a fully functioning limb for $350, instead of 80K, making this medical device much more affordable to the average person. His technology is open-sourced in the spirit of allowing anyone to access and customise it to suit their own situation.
Easton believes that ‘Curiosity is everything,’ and encourages us all to leverage ours as a tool, to motivate us and to ask the right questions in our quest to innovate.
