Aug 31, 2010: Old New Arm

This artificial left arm, which are now called prostheses so they can charge more, was made in Europe sometime in the second half of the 1800s.

Made from steel and brass, this unusual prosthetic arm articulates in a number of ways. The elbow joint can be moved by releasing a spring, whereas the top joint of the wrist allows a degree of rotation and an up-and-down motion. The fingers can also curl up and straighten out. The leather upper arm piece is used to fix the prosthesis to the remaining upper arm. The rather sinister appearance of the hand suggests the wearer may have disguised it with a glove. Among the most common causes of amputation throughout the 1800s were injuries received as a result of warfare.
Realistically, the last 100+ years haven't advanced this sort of thing all that much.
Fortunately the things coming out of R&D right now make the future look much brighter.

Steampunk terminator ???

Definitely an early T-800 prototype.

Now that's something that would freak out the grandkids.

It's almost elegant in style.

Masturbation is OUT though! You might cum unhinged.

That is so cool. I want it. It would make an excellent cup holder.

You insensitive bastard! My arm fell off during 9/11!

Did I get that right?

Insensitive? Moi? Not at all. I used your arm to plunge my downstairs toilet.

SPUCK  Thursday Sep 2 06:27 AM

Damit! - You caused milk to jet from my nostrils!

monster  Thursday Sep 2 10:49 PM

that's quite some feat -especially if you were drinking beer at the time. Using the uniquely jointed old-new-arm beer can holder.... no need to take the beer from the holder, just raise it to your mouth

This must have belonged to a VERY wealthy individual. That's incredible metalwork for the time.
