Maybe this can come under the heading of "not well known."

I've had this idea for a while, and recently came across a [link] that nails it.

       It'd be helpful to explain the idea in a bit more detail, rather than just sending people to a link. Also, the link is just a design concept, not a product. How would it measure the distance between the two elements?

       I thought this would be an accurate way of measuring fingers themselves.   

       Apparently married couples corrolate most closely in size for their finger length (index or middle, can't remember which), so that might even be useful for dating services.

       I pictured little hash marks tatooed along the fingers, and probably up the arm.
