Did you feel a little ashamed last time you caught yourself rolling your thumbs during that boring meeting or Figaro’s wedding? Well, no more, brother! Admiring onlookers will be sure to give you the thumbs-up at great aunt Agnes’ funeral, as you coolly twiddle your thumbs in one of our handsome Thumb Twiddlers.

To use, slip one of the shiny, ring gears on each thumb, then snap them into the titanium and ebony figure eight, housing the generator/motor, battery and the computer power of Apollo 8. Adjust the torque, rotate your digits in any direction, and later check the tiny LCD for watts produced, average rpm and total twiddles.

Had enough? Switch to output and let the Twiddler twiddle your thumbs until they’re tickled pink and slightly dizzy.

       [kbecker] Well, right now we’re busy developing custard gloves for drumming fingers, and for pistols, magnetic, snap-on sights for those who like to hold and shoot their guns sideways.   

       [po] He may first need to remove some hairs with...thumbwax.

       It takes two to twiddle.

       As far as I'm concerned, alcohol achieves the same effects. The same I tell you!
