The Finger Dance Machine: Like Dance Dance Revolution for Your Fingers

 |  |  |  |  April 1, 2021

Fingers: after a long day of typing they just want to let loose. And what better way to let your digits go wild for a bit than with some rhythm-based finger dancing with this $43 Finger Dance Machine available from Firebox? Oh, no, my fingers are telling me they’d actually prefer a hot bath and manicure instead.

The Finger Dance Machine requires 4 AA batteries (not included) and uses your smartphone as its video screen. You just download the free Mini Finger Dance app, connect your phone to the machine via Bluetooth, and it’s time to put those fingers to a dancing test with “heaps of tunes – all with varying speed and complexity.” Needless to say, I will be playing nothing but the low-speed, low-complexity tunes and still failing to set any high scores.

But will playing it give me carpal tunnel? Or will it relieve carpal tunnel? What exactly is carpal tunnel, and did I really think it was spelled carpool tunnel until I just looked it up? Would I really admit it if I did? Yes and yes.
