fingerphone

a cellphone that rides on your fingers

Well it's quite simple - the microphone on an elastic band around your little finger, the speaker around your thumb, and the buttons in groups of 3/4 on each of your middle fingers.

To use it, you make a fist and stick out your little finger + thumb; dial the number and then hold your hand up to your head in that internationally-recognised 'I'm on the phone, OK??' gesture.

So you never have to dig your phone out of your pocket again - and you look righteously cool into the bargain...

Or, perhaps more like this. This design reminds me of the *Chinese handcuffs* we played with as kids. [jurist, Jul 28 2005]

       The little speaker on my thumb makes it difficult to count my money and deal cards.

       ah, I should maybe elaborate by saying it goes around the middle thumb joint rather than the tip - same on little finger... oh, and it's very very thin and very very small :-)

       Ha ha, but we did this before.

       I believe that was a Cell Phone Glove, Curry, which is at least aesthetically different.

       I disagree. I'd call this redundant.

       Ah, Walt? It's for you.....

       Then hold your hand up to your head in that internationally-recognised 'I'm an idiot, OK??' gesture.

       hmm, a new contribution to phone sex, though.
