SNACTIV is a gadget consisting of a small pair of chopsticks that sit above your index and middle fingers, allowing you to grab chips or Cheetos, or any other small snack without getting your fingers dirty.
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?
Art: it means different things to different people. And to Nick Ramage, it means creating these £600 (~$830) Fingers Mk III mechanical sculptures. Honestly, I don’t know if I’m more surprised that they exist at all, or that there were Mk I and Mk II Fingers that came before this.
You might know Piano Tiles 2. It is a touch-based mobile game that’s very difficult; at least for humans. So DenverFinn built a robot that slips over an iPad and acts like human hands, super fast human hands.
Video and interactive artist Eran Amir created this silly contraption which does one thing and one thing only – it helps you twiddle your thumbs. Clearly, he did this because if you are truly so bored that you are twiddling your thumbs, you probably won’t have the patience to flex your own muscles to make it happen either.
Gamer girls… If you’re don’t mind wearing fake fingernails, have I got something for you. You’ll definitely stand out in a crowd wearing these acrylic fingernails, inspired by classic 8-bit gaming. For starters, we have the Atari 2600 nails.
UK-based Shadow Robot recently showed off their Shadow Dextrous Robot Hand at the International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo Japan. The hand “provides 24 movements, allowing a direct mapping from a human to a robot.”
This means that the robot can be as precise or as delicate as a human hand: it can insert thread into a needle’s eye, or pick up eggs or strawberries without crushing them.
This new mobile game lets you get some exercise on your iPhone – at least if you think stretching your fingers is a some kind of a workout.
Produced by Solid Alliance and Appare Japan, Finger Olympics 100m lets you “run” a 100-meter dash using only your fingertips.
This new iPhone / iPod Touch game looks like it could be a real blast. It’s a cartoony physics-based-platformer where you use your tiny little hands instead of your feet to make your way through the universe.
