Bitcoin really has shaken up the world. It has always been a risky affair, but many people took the risk and voila – they became wealthy millionaires. Of course, not everyone had the same fate. It is just a fact that some people are just born lucky. Consider Erik Finman – he invested in Bitcoin and became one of the world's youngest millionaires of our time. That’s quite an achievement for anybody, let alone someone who is at the ripe age of 19. What would you really expect Finman to going around doing with that much money? Perhaps, go running around partying – maybe buy the best gaming device in the world, that it, if he taps into his geeky self.

Well, Finman was wiser than any average teenager. He went on to invest his money in something special. No, it wasn’t to make him earn more money. Not, as of now. A son of one of his mentor’s, Aristou Meehan, came up with the big idea of a working model of Dr. Octopus’s arms. Anyone who has watched Spiderman can immediately imagine the model. A comic book fan, Meehan was fascinated with the costumes at Comic-Con and wanted something cool like that. The only catch is – he wanted that costume to be functional. Well, if you have an idea, all you need is an investor. And there was Finman, ready with his money to make Meehan’s dream come true. With a group of engineers, Finman invested much of his money into the project.

The exoskeleton of this beautiful piece was made using 3D printing. But the arms needed to be controlled by the wearer. For that, there are rear-mounted microcontrollers and eight motors which will power up the thing and give life to the mechanical arms. The user has to slip his hands in the gloves and control the arms with the middle finger on either hand. The multiple axes on the arms could be manipulated, and so, in the end, it can be properly used just like the arms of Dr. Octopus.

But the catch is – the arms aren't made for Finman. Instead, he wanted to make it for Aristou Meehan. Aristou Meehan is the son of one of Finman’s many mentors, and he suffers from hypermobility issues. It’s terrible that this 10-year kid has to suffer from this disorder. But thanks to Finman, there’s a way out. For Finman, he just wanted to do something special for a kid this young.

Finman started working with a group of engineers and invested much of his money into the project. The result was mind-blowing. Meehan couldn’t have been happier with the item. He loved it, and it also made him popular in school. Most of all, he is now capable of doing a lot more with the help of Dr. Octopus’ hands which was quite impossible before.

Finman would love to mass produce such an excellent product and see to it that it gets used for the wellbeing of other human beings. However, according to him, it is still very much like a concept car. He has been talking to many people to find a way out, and mass produce this product in any way possible. He also plans to open source the design in the future so that any other aspiring engineer could develop this product easily and make something happen about it.

Finman was able to show something that we often forget in our late teens or early twenties – that it is possible for us to change the life of others if we put our mind to it. For Finman, it had not been easy. Even if you have money, you need the right intention to sacrifice that money for a greater good. We may not have the same amount of wealth, but we are equally capable if we arm ourselves with the right intention.

For now, let us imagine a world where this kind of technology is easy to buy in the market and benefits the right kind of people. Would be pretty amazing to see Dr. Octopuses roaming around the streets, wouldn’t it?
