Man replaces lost finger with USB drive

When Finnish software developer Jerry Jalava lost his ring finger in a motorcycle accident (bike versus Bambi), his doctor replaced it with a thumb — a USB thumb drive, that is.

Concealed under the prosthetic fingernail is a 2GB USB drive, ready to pop into any computer. And no, the USB finger isn't permanently attached to his hand. Kinda disturbing if you happen to share a computer with him.

Always the developer, Javala is looking to upgrade his finger with wireless technology, RFID tag, and more storage. Just think — a Bluetooth finger. What other body parts can double as storage devices?
