Star Wars heroes are no stranger to bionic hands, and a young fan who has lost all four limbs due to meningitis now has his own artificial arm that would stay at home in a galaxy far, far away.
Kye Vincent was eight years old when doctors were forced to amputate his legs, his right hand and part of his left hand, with the infection spreading through his body in less than 24 hours.
Now 11, the young man became the first person in the world to receive a special bionic arm on the theme of the famous droid R2-D2, thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign.

Kye is said to be delighted with his new member, who uses sensors to detect muscle movements and is controlled by tension, as he would open and close his own biological hand.
And while it may not be able to display holographic messages from intergalactic princesses, the R2-D2 arm can be adjusted in size so that Kye can use it as it grows.
His mother, Cheryl Vincent, said that when doctors revealed that they had little chance of saving their limbs, the family began to fund crowdfunding so that Kye could fulfill his desire to become a "bionic boy."
"Seeing Kye by hand again was very, very emotional," she said.
The company behind the arm, Bristol-based Open Bionics, manufactured 3D printing.
It also offers themed members for the Disney movie, Frozen and Marvel, like Iron Man, but Kye only had eyes for something inspired by Star Wars.

His mother added: "I was very happy for him. From a young age, he always loved Star Wars.
"And having him on a prosthetic arm, shows what he likes."
Open Bionics hopes that its members will one day become more widely available through the NHS, as they can only be guaranteed through private funding and treatment at the moment.
Co-founder Samantha Payne said: "We wanted to show that people with a difference can be superheroes. There are no other multi-stick prosthetics available for children, and those that are can be quite ugly or impractical.
"We are waiting for the NHS England to update its outdated guidelines to provide access to amputees in the UK with this multi-claw technology that costs the same or less than the current NHS myoelectric solutions."

Open Bionics has provided other bionic arms for children in the UK and the USA, including its Iron Man variant for a teenager in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The company offers an insurance policy with free repairs for up to five years.
