A boy who was born with a partially developed arm was recently given a special “Iron Man”-themed prosthetic limb — from none other than Tony Stark himself.

In the video below, watch the moving moment when 7-year-old Alex walks into a room to find actor Robert Downey Jr., as his “Iron Man” alter ego, waiting for him.

Downey was there to present Alex with a 3D-printed bionic arm, which was designed by Albert Manero, a doctoral student in mechanical engineering at the University of Central Florida. Manero is the senior director of Limbitless Solutions, a volunteer organization that designs open-source 3D-printed limbs and donates them to children in need.

The story is incredible, the video is spectacular and the service and ingenuity offered by Albert Manero is priceless.
