Digigrade Leg Extensions are wearable mechanical devices to provide animal legs to humans. Trot like a satyr - sure, in this iteration of sculptor Kim Graham's Digilegs.
(Digigrade leg extensions by Kim Graham)
Digilegs may remind you of Kid Stealth from one of the Shadowrun companion novels. Here is an excerpt from the short story "It's All Done With Mirrors" in the anthology "Into the Shadows"
"His legs, on the other hand, are not built for dancing. Below the knees, both have been replaced with elongated ankles, making his legs appear to have an extra joint, much like a bird's. The major difference between his legs and those of your average pigeon is that Stealth's titanium legs come equipped with razored talons, especially the large, sickle-shaped blade on the innermost of the three toes of each foot. Dew claws were added for aesthetics, and a spur caps each ankle for balance."
