As many of you might have already heard from me or various places on the net after my motorcycle accident last year
I got myself a prosthetic USB finger.

After last night when my friend Bergie blogged about this many have contacted me through email and asking if it is true or how can I work while my finger is in the USB or Is it attached straight to my bone, etc.
So I think it is best I’ll try to explain some of these here now.

First of all it is not attached permanently into my body, it is a removable prosthetic which has USB memory stick inside it.


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

Currently I have Billix , CouchDBX and Ajatus installed inside it.
I’m planning to use the other prosthetic as a shell for the next version, which will have a removable fingertip and RFID tag.

I hope this helps some people to better understand what this all is about.
