Finger replaced with USB drive


A computer programmer from Finland who lost his ring finger in a motorcycle accident has had it replaced with a USB drive.

Jerry Jalava has built a special prosthetic finger which contains computer storage for photos, movies and other useful files.

While the prosthetic looks like a normal finger Jerry can peel it back from the ‘nail’ and plug it into the USB slot on his computer using it as an additional hard drive.

Jerry said it is not attached permanently in to my body, it is a removable prosthetic which has USB memorystick inside it,” said Jerry.

“When I’m using the USB, I just leave my finger inside the slot and pick it up after I’m ready.”

Jerry is already thinking about upgrading his faux finger to include more storage and wireless technology.
