usb memory stick in prosthetic finger

Posted by on March 9th, 2009 in body mods, prosthetics

Henri Bergius shows us what happens when reality meets product concepts:

The story behind this is that Jerry had a motorcycle accident last May and lost a finger. When the doctor working on the artificial finger heard he is a hacker, the immediate suggestion was to embed a USB “finger drive” to the design. Now he carries a Billix Linux distribution and the Freddy Got Fingered movie as part of his hand.

thanks to Dan Ballard for the tip-off!
