Finn creates USB 'finger drive'

Yes we've all heard it, we knew there was something funny in Scandinavia. 'Mr Jalava' says he was inspired by a joke made by the doctors treating him. A computer programmer lost one of his fingers in a motorcycle accident and made himself a prosthetic replacement with a USB drive attached.

Jerry Jalava uses the 2GB memory stick, accessed by peeling back the "nail", to store photos, movies and programmes.
The finger is not permanently attached to his hand, so it can be easily left plugged into a computer when in use.

Mr Jalava says he is already thinking about upgrading the finger to include more storage and wireless technology.

Strange child.
