Given that we spend more time on our mobile devices now than ever, it was only a matter of time before someone developed a product that offered some form of companionship between us and our phones. Thankfully(???) MobiLimb has finally come up with that robotic, wrist-stroking, finger that’s forever been missing from our handheld devices.
Human-computer interaction researcher Marc Teyssier has led development on MobiLimb, a robotic finger-like appendage that attaches to your smartphone. The finger can pull your device across a surface and even stroke its user’s wrist upon receiving a emoji text reply.
Check out this creepy little robo-finger below.
MobiLimb also doubles as a joystick for your phone’s mobile games. You can also use it to prop your device up on a surface for watching videos or reading.
