Real life Iron Man

A fishing-related explosion nearly 35 years ago left Sun Jifa without hands. Unable to afford prosthetic limbs, Sun designed his own out of scrap metal, plastic and rubber. 

The Chinese inventor has spent the past decade making more than 800 artificial limbs for the disabled, most of whom cannot afford it. "I feel like this is my mission in life," Sun says. "I can help others, despite being disabled myself." 

What a truly great human being.
