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.
Fortunately the things coming out of R&D right now make the future look much brighter.

Definitely an early T-800 prototype.

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

It's almost elegant in style.

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

Did I get that right?

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

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.
