USB prosthetic finger drive impractical…

When Jerry Jalava has a motocycle accident last year and lost a finger, he took full advantage of the situation by having a USB drive fitted to the end of his new finger! He now carries a full Linux operating system and the movie Freddy Got Fingered along with him wherever he goes…

Personally i would have gone for GoldFinger with a few Nine Inch Nails albums on there.

What worries me is that surely to use the Linux operating system, his finger would have to be permanantly plugged into the computer. His Words Per Minute would be greatly reduced together with his ability to shift click! Not practical at all 😉
