Robert Downey Jr based his character, Tony Stark, in Iron Man on former South African Elon Musk. Downey Jr recently assisted Albert Manero, an American who builds 3D-printed artificial limbs. Manero took his inspiration after hearing about Richard van As, a South African, who built replacement fingers for himself and founded Robohand.
In this clip a child receives a new hand offered to him by Downey Jr and built by Manero. Who might have thought South Africans would have that much influence on an event happening on the other side of the world.

Load shedding has caused people to do many things, few that would be polite to mention here, but the bonus video by Emma Engers is a parody of the Disney classic _Let it Go that laments the moment the Power Goes._
