Video Transcript

– I can’t wait to help out Avery. But before I leave tomorrow, the 3D print I’d like for Waddles has finally come in. How are you doing, Waddles? So I want to show you, we took that mold last time and I sent it to my 3D guys, and they basically rendered

The foot ahead of time. And then we sent that to our printers, and we printed this guy out. [laughs] – That’s awesome! – So his little nub’s going to go right in there. – Safety patrol orange. – Yeah. Let’s test it and see. Oh man, it fits perfect. – Yeah!

– That is perfect. Awesome. – I mean, you can’t get a better fit than that. – That looks amazing. – It just slides right in there. – Holy moly. I’m excited, yeah. – I am, too. I’m really excited now. – (SINGING) If you’re happy and you know it, [inaudible] your foot.

– All right, I think I want to try this thing out. I’ve been waiting a while for this. – All right, let’s do it. – Yeah, let’s see. Perfect. – It’s OK, buddy. Uh-huh. Oh, man. – It’s aligned properly, he’s just got to put it down. – Come on, you can do it.

– Dude, he’s like walking on it. Like– – Whoa. Whoa. – I love you, Waddles. I didn’t think I would be, like, emotional about this. But when you take these animals, all you want to do is give them a good life and do right by them.

And you see them struggling, and you think there’s nothing you could do. It’s, it’s really heartbreaking. So yeah, Derek knocked it out of the park. [laughing] I’m just so excited. – And that’s, like, with limited strength, you know? Like, he’s going to get stronger and stronger.

– He’s just going to be a super hero. – Oh, I’m just so happy, man. This is not only cool for Waddles, but for all the birds to come that we’re going to use this technology with. This is– – He’s an innovator. He’s the pioneer. – He’s a pioneer.
