Other projects dealt with the political and health spheres: Pia Zaragoza's Life Line Drones were developed as part of the Flying Robots class, and propose a series of networked drones that have 3-D printed modules to carry lab samples and medications to areas that are normally hard to reach due to limited road access. Zaragoza proposes to use a tool that is usually used to kill as a life giver.
On the other hand, OpenLimbs, by Andy Sigler, Carl Jamilkowski, and Will Canine, proposed an open API for controlling human arms. Developed as part of the Biomechanics for Interactive Design course, OpenLimbs is a platform for controlling human arms over the internet, where any assistive, educational, or entertainment device can interface and provide the control for a volunteer's arm. "Using Open Limbs, individuals can volunteer their body for control by people who may have never controlled an arm (including their own) before," the authors state.
