17-year old Diego Corredor always wanted to play guitar, but unfortunately, he lost his right hand at birth. Sure, 50 years ago it would safe to say that his chances of ever playing the guitar were non-existent. But this is 2015, and in the year 2015, we have amazing 3-D printers that have opened up so many doors to entire universes of possibilities.

Enter e-Nable and 3Dgluck. The two companies worked together to design and print Corredor a hand that would enable him to play the guitar. Wait till you see what they came up with.

The prosthetic allows Corredor to use his arm to control the guitar's strings. The guitar pick is attached, and with a few little movements, Corredor can easily play! The prosthetic also bears the name "Linkin Park" after his favorite band.

Check it out and watch this teen's amazing guitar skills in action. Be sure to turn on the subtitles and set them to translate to English if you don't speak Spanish.
