These modern prostheses often seem playful. For example, the product designer Carlos Arturo Torres has designed a prosthetic arm for children in cooperation with the Lego Future Lab, the toy manufacturer’s experimental research and development department. Torres would like to ensure that children with prostheses are not excluded by their peers but instead become the focal point when children are playing together. That’s why the prosthesis he developed, called Iko, ends not in a hand but in a Lego connector. The connector can be used to build any Lego construction, whether it’s an excavator shovel, a hand, or a Star Wars spaceship. The prostheses created by the designer Sophie de Oliveira Barata have been inspired by computer games and fetish fashion, and they remind one of humanoid robots.
