As the saying goes necessity is the mother of invention, that was the case for Vini Tripathii, a former engineering student at Cornell University, and her brother Eeshan, an MIT junior.

The Indian-American siblings sometime back saw her mother struggle while using prosthetics and wanted to come up with a solution for her.

“The prosthetic was just so inadequate. It made it so difficult for her to do simple everyday tasks,” Cornell University quoted Vini as saying.
