Most prosthetics are designed to look as much like flesh and bone as possible, even though it's usually obvious that they're not.
These 3D-printed prosthetics, however, are the exact opposite. Called Fairings, the prosthetics are designed to make a statement, not mask an absence. Because they are 3D printed directly from a digital model, Fairings can be custom-fitted to each individual user's shape and size.

Like jewelry or a tattoo, Fairings are unabashedly artificial, and quite beautiful. As creator Scott Summit of Bespoke Innovations said as he demonstrated the concept at a TED talk in January 2012: "We infuse a lot of the individual's taste and personality into it everywhere we can and we three-dimensionally print the results."
Fairings are available at Bespoke's website, where they cost between $4,000 and $6,000.
