From diggers to spaceships ... Iko imagines a world of customisable Lego prosthetics.

The Lego prosthetic arm that children can create and hack themselves

Carlos Arturo Torres has designed a modular system that lets kids programme their own prosthetics – and this is only the start of toy-based body parts

After a fair bit of tinkering, Torres developed a functioning prototype of a prosthetic that lets kid use their imagination to build their own arm  http://www.fact.co.uk/projects/build-your-own-tools-for-sharing
