Callum initially approached Team UnLimbited, a company that creates robotic limbs, to create one for his son. Unfortunately, there was a long waiting list for their printers, so he decided to do everything by himself. He purchased a 3D printer and started the process of turning his concept into reality after consulting social media groups. After numerous failures, he finally succeeded in printing a fake hand for his son.
