‘Third Thumb’ – The Prosthetic You Didn’t Know You Needed

For #TwitterTuesday we share Mashable’s cool summation of Dani Clode’s ‘Third Thumb’ prosthetic.

The Third Thumb is a motorised, controllable extra digit, designed for anyone who wants to extend their natural abilities.

A student of the school’s product design masters, Clode created the device as a way to challenge conventional ideas about prosthetics – usually thought of as devices only for people with disabilities.

Didn’t think you needed one? Once you’re ‘all thumbs’ it’s hard to go back.

For her graduate work at the Royal College of Art, Dani Clode created a wearable third thumb that can help its user do more complex tasks.
