This wonderful prosthesis was created by Christopher Snell. Snell’s a master at this; an expert in making all sorts of prosthetics.
What gets me is how the gears on the leg are still while the model is standing still. They only start to turn when the walker begins to use his leg. I don’t think this is the case of “clue some gears on it and call it steampunk” either. Most people know there’s an incredible amount of science that goes into prosthetics these days and the idea of a “steampunk assisted” leg makes perfect sense to me.
