This toy comes in many flavors.

a. FNock: The simplest is a device held in the palm of your hand, which extends out under your fingers, and perhaps you can wear like a glove. When you close and open your hand, it makes a nice "Cknocking" sound.

b. FNuckles: Same as -a- but also extends outside hand, over knuckles. When squished, it makes the nice "Cknocking" sound.

c. Personal Digital FNock (Pfnock) This one works silently, just silently gives you the knocking feel in you hands, and when you attach earphones, you can hear the sounds. So you can merrily crack your knuckles, without getting on your wife's nerves.

d. Virtual FNock: software only version. Makes sounds etc, and shows fingers being cracked.

e. Future developments: FNock T-shirts, mugs, screen savers, and most important: the FNock TV show.

       Does (c.) actually allow me to pop knuckles, or is this still simulation?

       God who? Oh sorry, wrong thread.   

       This is good, but surely it's the noise that is both satisfying (first party) and annoying (third party)? I suggest some form of noise cancellation, or possibly a soundproof sheath similar to those Japanese umbrellas that enclose the user in a transparent plastic tube.

       Bringing this back up to vote. Please note that the personal silent version is the one that will sell most, because it doesnt get on other people's nerves.

       These devices would eliminate the long wait for fingers to reset themselves to a crackable state after being spent. [+]
