    Custom Prosthetics

    As many of us here are fans of customized work, I thought this was interesting. The designer/custom prosthetic industry is growing. I just listened to a podcast where the lady who sort of started it talked about changing the concept of a prosthetic mimicking the look of a leg to hide it and instead personalizing your leg. These are some pretty cool legs.

    Too weird for me....
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence
