Can You Lend A Hand? Caption Competition #28
by Ian Skellern
Prosthetic limbs have come a long way since wooden peg legs and pirate hooks. Which explains why I was surprised by the fact that this arm below looks so obviously non-lifelike.
When you imagine walking romantically hand in hand, this is unlikely to be the hand you had in mind.
What do you think this robotic arm might be for? Not what the arm is for, but the fictional story this photo might reveal in your imagination.
Please leave your suggestions for captions or story lines in the comments below.
Congratulations to Birch for the first correct answer to last week’s competition featuring Urwerk designer Martin Frei. You can check out that and all of last week’s entries at Riddle Me This: When Is A Watch Not A Watch? Caption Competition #27.
