Limbitless Solutions, the non-profit organization creating 3D printed bionic arms for children and adults, has partnered with Ubisoft to bring a prosthetic sleeve modeled after Kassandra’s bracers in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Dubbed the “Bracers of the Underworld,” Limbitless Solutions began testing interchangeable sleeves in 2019, becoming the first company to do so. Limbitless aims to bring lower-cost prosthetics to the masses through the use of 3D printing and plans to do so while pairing it with custom artistic designs that recipients can personalize online.
Limbitless Solutions’ arms have interchangeable parts called “sleeves.” The newest sleeve design from @ubisoft @assassinscreed can fit an existing Limbitless #bionic arm. This sleeve inspires Bionic kids and adults to discover their inner #strength like Kassandra. #AssassinsCreed pic.twitter.com/K1ZfkMlXsO

School of Visual Arts & Design professor and Limbitless member Matt Dombrowski said, “Transcending the classroom walls with digital sculpting, 3D printing and airbrush painting techniques is essential to our success. This collaboration provides our Limbitless’ UCF undergraduate students an opportunity to utilize digital and traditional art tools to bring to life the Assassin’s Creed series’ designs.”

Limbitless has partnered with many other studios in the past to create pop culture-related prosthetics including the recent Cyberpunk 2077-themed prosthetic arm modeled after Keanu Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand. These arms will be donated to children and adults in upcoming clinical trials beginning in 2021.
In 2017, Limbitless designed an Iron Man-themed prosthetic arm for a seven-year-old boy who was gifted it by none other than Iron Man himself, actor Robert Downey, Jr. Two years later, Limbitless partnered with 343 Industries to create two prosthetic arms based on Halo’s Master Chief.
