    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.

    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?

  5. 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".

    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.
