And the award for creepiest technological innovation goes to…

A clip-on finger for your smart phone!

At least the video doesn’t bother to mention the sexual applications. It didn’t need to, because I know you were all thinking them.

    Actually, I was thinking if they got a whole hand on there you could get a high-five or fist bump anytime you need one.
    I like the idea of it tapping impatiently when you have new notifications though.

    Actually, no I wasn’t.

    …. until I watched the video…. then it was obvious.

    All I need it to do is to crawl off to plug itself into an outlet, and to catch Pokemon for me.

  4. DonDueed says

    Actually, I was envisioning the finger actuating its own phone’s touchscreen, no doubt coordinating the robot revolution.

  5. Ichthyic says

    this is just too fucking creepy for me.

    first nightmare I ever had was about the “disembodied hand” that crawls up the side of the bed and chokes you.

    whoever thought this was a good idea apparently has no conception of creep factor.

    I’m going to have to rethink some phrases I associate with my phone, such as:
    – Putting the phone on vibrate
    – Butt dialing
    Anybody have any other phrases?

    Might get one, if only so that I can program it to walk/slide the phone and it off of the table, falling into a caldron of boiling oil that I’ll keep just for that purpose when I’m called outside of work hours.
