Using 3D printers, they're designing artificial limbs that go way beyond being simply practical. They've developed a range of limbs called "More Than Human", which 3Ders say "focuses on producing artistic prosthetic limbs that capture the identity and soul of the wearer and turn the negativity of using a limb into a positive expression of the self".
