Who has three thumbs and has just uncovered a whole new range of possibilities in their everyday life? With this Third Thumb Attachment, you do.
The Third Thumb Attachment gives you a new functional thumb to use in a variety of ways. The attachment goes onto the side of your hand, right below your pinkie.
The movement of the thumb is ensured by two motors hiding inside of it. But the real culprits that run the show are your toes.
Your toes can put pressure onto two sensors that hide in your shoes. The sensors, in return, send the signal back to the thumb via Bluetooth and “tell” it what it’s supposed to do.
The whole project of the Third Thumb Attachment has been designed as an artistic exploration of the origins of the word “prosthesis” – ‘to add’.
So in the inventor’s vision, the Third Thumb is not supposed to replace or fix the fact of a missing finger, but rather add a new dimension to people’s natural abilities.
From an artistic point of view, that sounds deep and fascinating. But after seeing what the Third Thumb Attachment can do, we think that anyone should try it out. No matter if it adds, extends, fixes, or replaces.
