Unleash Your Inner Centaur

New mechanical legs turn you into a cyborg centaur

Do you live in a magical wardrobe where you constantly reread Edith Hamilton's Mythology hoping one day to transform into a centaur? Thanks to artist Kim Graham, you can now strap on some robotic horse legs and live the fantasy.

The Digitigrade Leg Extensions respond to your normal gait and add a mechanical clop to your step. Graham claims that it takes about 10-15 minute of practice before walking with the Digilegs feels natural; expect a bit more time to master walking while shooting arrows or playing pan flutes. Running at about $1,000, the legs can even come with furry covers to complete the look. This could be the upgrade that Renaissance Festival actors and LARPers have been waiting for, despite years of furiously leveling-up.
