See where your finger takes you®

Ever wanted to be able to see round corners? Well now you can with Finger-Eye™

"I was just amazed at how much the latex glove looked like normal skin, and the lithium-ion battery-powered camera just clipped on my belt. It was a little uncomfortable having the fibreoptic cable running up my body and down my sleeve to the glove, but I understand they're working on a much finer one for the new model"

"The glases were great, you could see normally through them, but the touch-sensitive switch on the side caused the LCD lens on my right side to become opaque, and then show the TV picture. It was amazing! I set the transparency quite high so I could see where I was going too, but if I wanted to use it specifically I could just crank it up and shut my left eye. I can't wait till they come out with the full 3-d image model they're planning for next year - it uses two cameras on two fingers, index and pinky - did you know that your eyes are about the same distance apart as that? - anyway it projects on to both eyes to give the full stereoscopic vision."

"I'm a mechanic, and being able to see up under a wheel arch, or behind the engine block without having to get underneath the car is great!"

"As a Obstetrician and paedeatrician, it's great not to have to use huge expensive equipment anymore. And it doesn't frighten the children - I can see down you throat, or in your ear just by inserting a finger. Also it's fantastic for other internal examinations, if you get my drift"

"Well I'm just a dirty old pervert, and it lets me see all sorts of things I shouldn't. I particularly like the Extenda-Eye extension which allows you to push the tiny camera a full three feet on a semi rigid wire - great for looking through keyholes"

       The width of one hand is a little greater than the length of the other's fingers: nature's way of stopping you from poking two eyes out at a time.

       Would this stop people from picking their nose, or enocourage them?

       Imagine the miltary uses too - being able to see round corners without sticking your head in the firing line for instance. Or in customs, searching a bag (although you'd need the optional NailLight for that to work properly).
Vets could benefit too...

       FJ: Huh? I can easily touch both my eyes with the fingers of one hand. Not sure why I would want to poke both eyes out, or even one, though.

       I was thinking of the Three Stooges' eye-poke-out-defense of a wide farmer's hand placed vertically over the bridge of the nose.

       So...tempted...to fishbone...because of...cheap anno! Aw, damn, I like the idea too much. [+]

       I belive Kryten in "Red Dwarf" put his eyes on his fingers once. Of course you could use a mirror! I can think of a number of professions who might use this, for some reason Gynacologist springs to mind. But then so did live nose picking so what do I know.   

       So there is the potential for a sister application! The finger light!

       You could give someone the lit up finger!

       Is that a camera in my pocket or are you just happy to see me? [+]
