We have computers, cars, televisions, the Internet, smartphones, devices that speak back to us. So, what else could we use? Haven’t we created everything necessary in society? We’ve pushed technology to its edge, right? Think again, we haven’t created the phone finger or have we?
Recently, there has been an inventor who has created an item that could perhaps become your next best friend. Wouldn’t it be helpful and handy to have a device that could do stuff for you with its own finger? Like pulling itself towards you. Or what about giving you a little tickle to brighten your day. Well, that is exactly what a phone finger can do for you. Some of you may be creeped out by a phone finger. That’s understandable. Isn’t it enough that we have devices that talk to us and cars that drive themselves? Some may think that, but technology has proven time and time again that it aids us and pushes society further. Artificial intelligence has found its way into creating a device that basically allows you and your phone to have a best friend.
Searching the web to learn more about this crafty invention may be a bit hard. A website or two may cover this. This is very new and not many media sites are covering it just yet. Tests and further progress are still being done to make sure this item is ready for the public. When the public can get their hands on one of these phone fingers, they will be able to have a phone assistant. This will absolutely revolutionize the way we interact with our phones.
This device is made of small servo motors. The device has a total of five of these motors. The motors are surrounded by a shell that has been 3D printed. An open-source hardware is the control center of this device. Power and data transmission are dependent on a variety of mobile operating systems. The technology used to create this robotic finger is rather simple. The finger replicates a human finger in motion. The finger can scratch, itch and crawl.
One may wonder why an invention like this was created. Essentially, this robotic finger was created to bring an element of human touch to the world of social and digital communication. Digital communication has often replaced the need for social interaction, although social interaction is known as a positive thing for the body. This device always for a person to use their phone for social purposes but to also get the effects of human touch. For example, someone may send a text message and the phone finger activates and scratches the recipient’s hand. This allows for non-physical communication to become physical. It can be thoughtful. It can be needful. But also depending on the person, this may be unwanted and a bit creepy. Either way, this device was created to bring back the human element to a world where non-physical communication has become so rampant in our digitalized lives.
