Well, you want to make the prosthetic look as normal and realistic as possible so that the person who has to use them won't feel like a freak. Hopefully in the future we'll be able to create prosthetic limbs that are as functional or almost as functional as the real thing too.

It's embarrassing.

Even for a person who doesn't care about social norms and conventions; it's still embarrassing. They grew up in a society that has an idea of what is normal and what is not... it's not like people grew up in a jungle and has no shame.

i have a fake eye that looks normal but i'd trade it in for one that glows red and fires lasers without hesitation. still, i'm not quite normal, so my opinion isn't either. most people with a prosthetic know that it will be the first thing that draws attention. anything that makes it less noticeable is usually welcomed. however there are already prosthetics that are superior in function to real ones out now

Thought this link might be interesting. It's for an article on an artist who makes artistic limbs. The limbs are used by fashion models.

I think if I lost my arm/leg it would be pretty cool to get a metal limb, like Elric. I honestly don't know if that's possible, I'm just saying I wouldn't be afraid to wear it in public.
