Vitória was the lead designer for Open Bionics - whilst in residence, she spent her time designing creative and customisable 3D printable robotic prosthetics. With a background in 3D modelling, life drawing, anatomy and animation, Vitória is interested in multidisciplinary approaches to problem-solving as well as development of solutions using creative and science-based concepts.

During her time in residence, Vitória wanted to explore alternative looks and functions of low-cost bionic hands, working in collaboration with Studio residents to explore new materials, different styles, colours, and even optional functions opening up the possibility of giving the wearer superhuman capabilities. Can we make colourful super-hero hands for children and fashionable / high-tech hands for adults?
