David Aguilar is a teenager from Andorra who was born with a deformed right arm. However, David didn’t let that get in the way of his passion for LEGO. As a child, David built vehicles and toys with the world famous interconnecting blocks. From there, David went on to create his own LEGO prosthetic limb, and he hasn’t stopped improving upon it.
As David himself explains, he first attempted to make a Lego prosthetic when he was only nine years old.

He also incorporated a battery to act as a bicep muscle and rigged a fishing line within the arm that allows him to manipulate the limb beyond his body’s capabilities. Outside of his passion for LEGOs, David is also an EDM musician who goes by the name “Hand Solo
