Robert Downey Jr. delivers a real bionic arm

I thought this was just fantastic. Robert Downey Jr plays Tony Stark, delivering a bionic arm built by Limbitless founder Albert Manero to a kid in need.

My favorite moment is about 1:08 in, when Alex (the kid) is asked, “Do you know who this is?” My sense is that Downey was a little worried that the whole Iron Man thing would be lost on him, that it would be a flop. It was not.

    Downey’s fist pump when the kid replies to the “Do you know who this is?” question is priceless.

    That is fantastic! Very well done to all involved and thank you Mr Downey for making a kids, day, month and year.

  • Great stuff.

    I’ve always been a big fan of his. Not many people come back from the kind of addiction problems he had, and even fewer in a place like Hollywood.

    • Given his background, Downey was absolutely the perfect choice to portray Anthony Stark.

  • LOVE this. Geek JOY.
