Five Finger Input Device: New Bland of Welfare Equipment

The geeks at Double Research & Development have unveiled a new computer input device that is able to sense input from Sally and her four sisters.

The thing looks sort of like a mouse with five finger pads attached by flat circuits. Each of the pads under a finger can sense motion and pressure. That allows the five finger thingy to sense specific gestures and inputs by reading the position of a finger and the pressure.

It’s an interesting device, but whether or not it ever comes to market is anyone’s guess.

Good ol’ Double Research and Development Co should have used some of its doubly good research skills on a better translator. I hardly think that banner you see in the video above is what they meant. A new bland of welfare equipment sounds rather, well, bland to me.

I often curse Google Translate because its translation results tend to need translations themselves. I’ve yet to see a translation from Chinese or Japanese make much sense. I guess the issue goes both ways.
