by | 18th, March 2009

JERRY Jalavam, a computer programmer form Finland, has replaced a finger lost in an accident with a false finger with an inbuilt USB drive.

Mr Jalavam now has a two gigabyte finger.

Says he:

“It is not attached permanently in to my body, it is a removable prosthetic which has USB memorystick inside it. When I’m using the USB, I just leave my finger inside the slot and pick it up after I’m ready.”

“I’m planning to use anther prosthetic as a shell for the next version, which will have removable fingertip and an RFID tag.”

Warning: Readers are reminded that sticking fingers into electric devices can result in a loss of data.
