A computer programmer from Finland who lost one of his fingers in a motorcycle accident has opted to replace it with a USB drive built in to a special prosthetic finger. The connector for the device is concealed inside the fingernail and can be hidden away when not in use. Could this pave the way for other enhancements to prosthetic devices in the future ?
A computer programmer from Finland who lost his ring finger in a motorcycle accident has had it replaced with a USB drive. Jerry Jalava has built a special prosthetic finger which contains computer storage for photos, movies and other useful files. While the prosthetic looks like a normal finger Jerry can peel it back from the 'nail' and plug it into the USB slot on his computer using it as an additional hard drive. "
