Since Jordan was very small, Randy and I have talked about how cool she’ll be when she gets her iArm – a prosthetic that will contain her iPhone, a small knife (for protection of course), a USB drive and all kinds of technically helpful tools. It will be SO cool. So when I found out about this, I nearly fell out of my chair.
Check it out! A guy named Jerry Jalava lost his finger so he replaced it with a sillicone finger that includes a 2 Gig USB drive! Ahh! I love it. Here’s a story about it and here’s his Flickr pictures.
I think that’s pretty cool. The funny thing is I tend to talk about all of these cool technologies that will enhance Jordan’s life with a prosthetic — and when she wears hers, she defaults to the most simple version. She’d much rather wear her “bouncy arm.” The passive hand that has a little flex to it. No thrills, no frills. But knowing Jordan, when there’s a frill to a prosthetic that thrills her, she’ll make a switch to something more exciting.
