Exoskeletal 3D-printed cast

Wow, Victoria University of Wellington graduate Jake Evill has created a 3D-printed lightweight and ventilated cast that can be customized to fit the wearer based on X-rays of the fractured bone, with added support near the fracture.

The concept design looks so cool, that, if it were to ever get made, would at least give some cheer to those of us with broken bones, just so we can flaunt our injuries proudly like temporary battle scars.
