An architecture design student decides to make some awesome prosthetics for his friend. I love seeing this.
Most people missing limbs are, understandably, very self conscious about it. I remember a war buddy of my dad’s that had one of those hooks that also worked like pinchers. Scared the crap out of me as a kid. (It didn’t help that he once threatened to grab my nose with it. I think he was just trying to make a joke, I didn’t laugh.)
But as people create something customized and beautiful it allows them to not feel like they have to hide it. And in another 5-10 years, I’d be surprised if we didn’t see people with commercially viable, artificial limbs that are superior in many ways to the real thing.
