Team UnLimbited Blog
This blog documents the collaborative work by Drew Murray and Stephen Davies as volunteers in Britain, we collaborate on our voluntary efforts under the name of Team UnLimbited. Our R&D efforts include developing new devices, research into materials and functional improvements. All our work is shared as open source for the benefit of all, for non-commercial use.
Just a few days ago it was the one year anniversary that we released v2 of our UnLimbited arm for free. Our design has now been downloaded over five thousand times, helping hundreds of people all over the world. We have loved seeing all the photo's, and hearing the stories of all people wearing and using our arm. We would like to thank all the kind souls that have helped give the world a helping hand, and encourage others to put their printers to good use. For just £20-£30 (gbp) in materials you can help build an arm for a child who needs one.
John Seems in good spirits on his epic journey, and is doing fantastic. I'd like to say ONLY 800 miles to go, but that's still a HUGE distance of his original 2771 miles along the Continental divide from Banff in Canada to Antelope Wells in Mexico. John Said "Thanks for all your support guys it really is spurring me on, I'm gonna nail this sucker, the heat today was relentless, another 94 miles in the bag so much climbing and not much food and water, I was so dirty when I reached the town I treated myself to a hotel and a fat burrito".
John White who is taking part in the Great Divide time trial cycling event, which is a 2771 long endurance from Canada to Mexico, has made it to the half way mark!!
John has been fundraising for Team UnLimbited. You can donate at his GOFUNDME page here.
He is well on his way to reaching the target of 30 days to complete the epic journey.
He has met with some weather extremes along the way - from 30' heat, massive thunderstorms, snowstorms and also met a few bears! His spirits are high and his body is holding out well! The training and preparations are certainly paying off. We're so proud of you!
