Video of the Day: A prosthetic leg made from Legos

We've seen a bionic arm made out of Legos, but can't recall seeing many other Lego prosthetics since. Enter Christina Stephens, a "practicing occupational therapist, clinical researcher, and peer educator chronicling her journey from foot crush injury to amputation and beyond" according to her bio.

Stephens' YouTube channel, Amputee OT, is a place where she shares information for amputees, and she has a bit of fun along the way, too. So she decided to build a prosthetic leg out of Legos. Here's her explanation on how the whole idea began:

"Someone in my research lab jokingly suggested I make a prosthetic leg out of legos. The joke's on you — I went home and did it. Please don't do this yourself, I don't want you to fall and get hurt! Sometimes, you just need to be silly."
