X-Finger : "Mechanical fingers" that can operate without battery

Your Ad Here

Dan Didrick's X-Finger prosthesis is digital in the old-fashioned sense: it replaces digits lost to wear and tear with fully-mobile artifical replacements. Moreover, it does so without any electrical components at all — no robotics necessary.

Instead, each X-Finger includes a lever which, when pushed by the surviving part of the wearer's finger, mechanically articulates the knuckles. Correctly fitted, it provides enough grip to club one's way to the 18th hole or hurl plates at an unfaithful lover.
