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.

If you missed tech reviewer Armando Ferreira's novel Macbook review using a completely unrelated video, here is your chance. It had almost 300 000 views two days after posting and is about to pass 2 million. The story is funny, but the original story appears to be hilarious.

The last video is for parents with children who are not easily impressed. A bubble blower that has elevated blowing bubbles to an art form. The video states he will "blow you away" which is possibly the first time the phrase could actually be legitimately used.

The secret seems to be that he blows the bubbles using latex gloves with wristbands to supply the soapy solution.

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._
