Google, the giant search engine released its annual Zeitgeist video showing "how the world searched" in 2012.

Among the 2012 Summer Olympics, Gangnam Style, the elections in the United States, Felix Baumgartner's 39KM jump, the Mars Rover landing, we see also little Emma (at 2:46), a two-year-old girl couldn't lift her arms by her own strength because of arthrogryposis, a rare congenital disease that affects muscle strength. With 3D printing researchers at a Delaware hospital 3D printed a durable custom exoskeleton with the tiny, lightweight parts so that she can finally move her arm, play with blocks and make some drawing as the other kids. Emma calls these arms her "magic arms".

It's a beautifully edited video covering not only the most notables events and famous people, but also small triumphs and man's continual effort to go beyond himself.

Here is the Google Zeitgeist 2012: Year In Review.

Watch again below how 3D printing helps the little girl and changes people's lives.
