Covid Flicking Finger

Covid Flicking Finger is an special new protective glove that comes equipped with an extra feature enabling the wearer to display and use a pointing finger.

The pointing finger is at the end of an additional replica hand attached to the tip of the index finger of the glove. When not in use, it's stored in a resting position, folded back parallel to the finger, but can quickly be deployed like the blade of a flick-knife.

Activation of the flicking action is acheived by squeezing the hand unto a concealed micro switch. This releases the trigger controlling the release of a tiny pneumatic cylinder, causing the extended pointing finger hand to spring forward.

You can now point to the things you want with even more emphasis, or use the finger to activate smaller buttons that were difficult to access whilst wearing gloves. (see pic for greater clarity)

       I don't suppose there's any mileage in suggesting second-and third-order recursively smaller devices, is there...?

       Of course there is.

       So, it's not an actual weapon, then ? It needs to be sharp ... ever so sharp ... so you can hold it up to the light, and watch the way it glints off the edge of the blade ...
