Indeed, his prosthesis concept manages to be both. The Corian-plated limb features two dome joints that offer a wider range of motion than a real arm while still managing, at least in my eyes, to be as much an accessory as it is a medical device.

Imagine if this arm had been covered in a pseudo-flesh toned rubber. Your brain would acknowledge the piece as something that didn't fit. Maybe because this arm isn't trying to look real, my brain accepts it as part of the image with ease.
