Woman Invents Horse Leg Extensions??
Updated : May 15, 2009
A Seattle designer has invented horse leg extensions. The ultimate gadget for people who would like to be taller and more graceful, she claims, but VeryHappyPig thinks they are the ultimate toy for kids, who want to play futuristic war. VeryHappyPig can’t wait to get one.
Kim Graham's Digtiigrade Leg Extensions add 14 inches of height to the wearer - and she claims a number of famously pint-sized actors and performers already have their names on the two-month waiting list.
The fine art sculptor says the steel extensions are much more than just stilts and insists: "They give a person the uncanny and graceful appearance of an animal."
They're made of steel, cable, foam, and rigid plastic - and, according to Ms Graham, take just 10 to 15 minutes to learn to walk in.
They apparently work well on level surfaces, although sharp inclines are difficult and stairs are downright risky.
The legs cost just £500 a pair - or £665 for spring loaded hooves for those requiring a little extra bounce.
VeryHappyPig is currently working on pig legs extensions for those who want to be short and stumpy.
