Christina Stephens builds a prosthetic leg from, erm, LEGOS

Even though a Lego prosthetic is hardly practical, the building of one that is comfortable and actually fits is a feat to be comended. Christina Stephens, an occupational therapist and researcher, had her left foot amputated last year after it was crushed beneath the car she was rebuilding.

The idea was suggested by a co-worker jokingly, but Stephens decided to develop it. It took her two days to build the prosthetic and two hours to fit it to her leg.
