Robert Downey Jr. is so sexy, but part of his charm is his kindness.
The Iron Man star met with a 7-year-old fan named Alex Mead, who was born with a partially developed right arm at birth. The actor presented Alex with a cool bionic Iron Man Arm. What an awesome story!
Robert Downey Jr. showed up as Tony Stark to meet up with the young man, who obviously recognized the star.
The actor pulled out two boxes, one with an arm for him and one with an arm for Alex. The arm was created thanks to Microsoft One Note’s Collective Project and Limbitless Solutions, a group that develops affordable 3D-printed limbs.
The video of their interaction just made us adore RDJ even more than we did before. And that little boy Alex is adorable!
The awesome bionic arm was built for Alex with the help of Microsoft OneNote’s Collective Project and Limbitless Solutions, a group ran by engineering doctoral student Albert Manero. The team specializes in low-cost 3D-printed limbs.
Robert Downey Jr. later posted about his interaction with Alex, writing, “Had the absolute privilege of presenting a brand spanking new 3D-printed bionic Iron Man arm to Alex, the most dapper 7-year-old I’ve ever met”
He also posted a video, in which he comments the young man’s bow tie and inquires about his travels.
What a beautiful and refreshing celebrity story!
