Hope Gets Robotic Legs

This puppy you see above, Hope, had the misfortune of being born without front legs. Orthotist David Turnbill took this opportunity to fashion a custom support for Hope by using a couple of model airplane wheels, where each artificial limb is able to move up and down independently, enabling Hope to pivot and turn at her own whim and fancy. While Hope is still a long way off from being the robotic sidekick of Megaman, at least she has a greater degree of freedom now.
