Cool Historical Prosthetics That Made Us Say 'Whoa'
Prosthetics are an amazing feat of science for people who need replacement limbs. Thankfully, through technology, people today in need of prosthetics can get highly intelligent bionic limbs - which are extremely close to the real thing. But because of that technology, it seems wild that prosthetics are not something only available in the last 50 years.
In fact, they've been around for centuries. Ancient prosthetic toes, eyes, noses - you name it. An old wooden toe was even found on the foot of a mummy as an example of ancient Egyptian prosthetics. These historical prosthetics prove just how far technology has come over the years, while simultaneously highlighting all the fundamentals that have been right all these years.
