Third Thumb Changes The Prosthetics Game
The Third Thumb Project Funky Prosthetics

Follow by Email
London-based product designer, Dani Clode designed a third thumb to change the way people think about prosthetics. Clode believes that prosthetics extent a wearer's ability. They shouldn't be regarded as a replacement to part of the human body. The third thumb is made from a series of interconnected parts: a hand piece, an attachment, cables, motors, and two Bluetooth controllers.

neopalm2050 : am I the only one here who's slightly disappointed that the thumb was controlled by your toes and not some sort of interface with nerves so it actually acts like a different part of your body?

GetShocked : When you walk, it just opens and closes?

Golden Apple : General Grievous from Star Wars got two

Solrex the Sun King : With this tech, make a naga/Lamia tail you can wear over your legs! You would pump your legs up and down to move, as if slithering. This would make a really cool costume for LARP or Halloween or filming or whatever. Leaning left or right would turn which direction you go. Leaning on one foot excessively would cause the tail to curl up, but if coiling an object, it will squeeze but not crush the object/person. I would buy something like this haha! Imagine using the illusion of making a rubber hand feel like your hand to also feel what the tail does when wearing it!

balluumm1 : Absolutely amazing! I wish you all the best in developing it further. The world needs more people like you. Well done!

Vikrant : *Awesome ! Now give me a high Six*

Mekhi Terry : Do you want people running around like Dr. Octopus? Because this is how you get DR. OCTOPUS!

TacoTacoTacoTaco : You already have to use your feet to control it. Why not just use your feet like hands. 20 fingers then.
