We highlighted the TED talk of Hugh Herr a couple of weeks ago. But his work is too important and beautiful to leave to just one post.

Another update to my previous post. Piecing this together rather slowly, been focusing on small details. Still have quite a bit to do with head covering and touching up the parka. Have some guns, too.
