If both giants and Hollow Earth existed, this is how they'd probably reach the surface. This particular specimen can be found in Budapest at Szechenyi Square. It was created by artist Ervin Herve-Loranth from polystyrene, and has been part of a display in Budapest's art market exhibition for the past week.

Duck Prosthetic Leg

While small dogs and cats can survive comfortably with three legs, larger dogs, horses, and farm animals require the limb to support their weight. Surgery has also been done on birds that are used for breeding purposes. Each prosthetic limb is custom-made to fit the individual needs of the specific animal. Dudley (above) lost a leg as a wee duckling when attacked by aggressive chickens. While he could still swim, Dudley had trouble getting around on land. So, mechanical engineer Terence Loring partnered with 3-D printing company Proto3000 to help fabricate an artificial leg. Continue reading for more.

Kicking a few stones around while walking isn't anything most people would take notice of, but one look at these creative sculptures by Japanese artist Hirotoshi Itoh, and you'll see them in a whole new light. He goes by "Jiyuseki" online, and he masterfully works with natural stones using both hand tools, as well as clever props, to create illusions such as the one above of a group of tourists peering out from a rock.

Dog Bed

Most dog beds are designed purely for function rather than form, but this one aims to combine it with some luxury. This particular creation was modeled after a bed you'd find in IKEA, complete with miniature pillow, blanket, night stands, and cups. However, when dogs aren't sleeping, they tend to keep their owner(s) very busy, and that's why we've rounded up some creative gadgets, along with accessories, that every geek should have for their pets.

Synthetic Biological Leaf

What you're looking at above is a synthetic leaf that could one day help humans colonize space. To create this, scienctists first extract the protein-based material directly from the silk fiber, which is then used to stabilize organelles. "The man-made leaf is lighter than the real thing, but better suited to long-term life in space because scientists don't know if organic plants would survive and flourish outside our atmosphere the way humans would need them to. And if mankind is to colonize space, those living on another planet would need to produce their own O2 gas," says RT. Continue reading for more.

Severed Spinal Cord

Darek Fidyka, a fireman paralyzed from the waist down after his spinal cord was completely severed in a tragic knife attack, has regained the ability to walk thanks to an experimental cell transplant by British scientists. Though some victims of partial spinal injury have recovered, a complete break was generally assumed to be irreparable, that is until...scientists in Poland used cells from Fidyka's nose to re-grow nerve cells which were then inserted into his spine, repairing the broken link.
