    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.
