The Alternative Limb Project is pushing the limits of how realistic artificial limbs can look. The brainchild of Sophie de Oliveira Barata, a special effects designer who transitioned into prosthetics, the project creates custom implants for people with widely ranging preferences. The silicone-based designs are incredibly life-like.
For clients who don't necessarily want natural-looking artificial limbs, de Oliveira Barata can create surreal and avant-garde designs. Product examples on the website include a Swarovski crystallized leg and an arm with a snake prominently featured in the design.
