My prosthetic leg is made of Lego bricks

Christina here…

As promised last week, here is a video of me making a prosthetic leg out of Lego bricks!

I can even almost sort of kind of maybe a little walk on it.

Enjoy, my pretties!

    Clearly, the next step is Lego Mindstorm.

      I’m so glad I’m not the only one who thought of that.

      I agree! Lego Mindstorm with programmable pneumatic actuation, sensors, and unbreakable cybernetic will to dominate organic meatbags!

        I’ve been trying not to make Borg comments

        • Zinc Avenger

          I was thinking more along the lines of Darth Vader. More machine now than (wo)man, twisted and evil (little thing).

            Resistance is Voltage divided by Current!

    I’m looking forward to the next round of warning stickers on the Legos box; like maybe the upcoming October Halloween Fun Land. “Do not use to make body parts.”

    Haha the title of the post jumped out at me…so I was pleasantly surprised to see you weren’t kidding!! I bet if you got the technic sets you get all sorts of crazy looking parts to it, like gears and hydraulics etc.

    This needs to be more than just a one-shot thing. Prosthetic Legos FTW!

    Maybe you could do a guest appearance in the Brick Testament.
