Update: Longer video here, with footage of him typing at 2:08 and 3:39.
Is it just me or does that man have a toe for a thumb?
This is the first time I've been tempted to think you made the post explicitly for the matchup with the Now Playing field.
Oddly, I was just listening to the song when I saw the post.Spooky.
Awesome. I especially love that shot at the end. "Well, now that I've got my pinky back, it's time to mix up some cocktails! Singapore sling, anyone?"
Someone on YouTube marked that video as adults-only. WTF? Is it the implied alcohol consumption?
Perhaps the robotic pinky qualifies as a sex toy.
That's pretty awesome. Not a whole lot of strength at the tip, but cool nonetheless.
i'd guess bass playing yes, guitar playing no. but it's getting there.
Aesthetically speaking, it looks less creepy without the "silicon sheath".
Firefox spellchecker has fuzzed me again. Silicon should be silicone.
I think it looks pretty creepy with the sheath...maybe instead of faux skin tone they should just make it black..maybe some nice rhinestones or something?
It's gotta be chrome.
I think it's funny how much more impressive to me the typing was than any of the gripping action. It's like I'm making a morbid calculation that if I lost my pinky, it would be okay that I couldn't use a cocktail shaker as well anymore, but how would it affect my typing?
Though I suppose in jwz chosen line of work the cocktail shaker might still be an important question. =)
I hope for a day when our hands won't be our most efficient means of communicating with a computer.
I, for one, welcome our new robo-dactylic overlords?
Robo-tactylic? (6 million dollar Mr. McFeely!)
