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.
