As anyone that has just begun needlepoint or a filing job, beginnings can be painful. Using a laser (those things can do /anything/) one's fingertips can be temporarily calloused-- so papercuts and pin pokes don't pack such a punch. Thanks.

       Quite *handy* for guitarists who like heavy guage strings - better tone, ya know. I use all 5 digits on each hand - playing fingerstyle.
Factoid: Japanese accidentally discovered the main ingredient of superglue, cyanoacrylate, was chemically attracted to fingerprints. War Medics put it to good use as a skin sealant.
