Advances to prosthetic limbs have come a long way in recent years, thanks in part to people like Carlos Arturo Torres. Torres has designed a prosthetic modular system that allows children to program and customize their own prosthetic limbs. How cool is that?! These prosthetics still operate normally, but are able to attach toys designed and built by the child. Talk about putting the FUN in functional. By incorporating the child’s creativity and imagination, the toy-based body parts are helping children to view their prosthetics in a more positive light.

What a cool advancement! Read more about it here.
