Turn Your Nose into an Extra Finger With the Finger-Nose Stylus for Touch Screens


Sun, May 8th, 2011 22:00 by capnasty NEWS

Artist, designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox came up with a novel idea for those that need a third-hand, so busy they are: the finger-nose stylus for touch screens.

With this handy Pinocchio-like attachment, you can use your nose to navigate your smartphone, keeping one hand free for other activities.

Mr. Wilcox isn't only a genius, but he's also cleverly funny, as seen on his explanation of how the idea dawned on him:

I sometimes use my touchphone in the bath. I know it's stupid. One problem I encounter is that when put my left hand in the water without thinking, it gets wet and unusable for touchscreen navigation. It is too risky to try to hold and navigate with one hand. I found that I could use my nose to scroll but I couldn't see where my nose was touching precisely. It was at that point that I came up with this idea of a nose extension 'finger' that would allow navigation while my phone is firmly held by one hand.

I did send a tweet from the bath last night which was typed as 'Hello I am tweeting with my nose' unfortunately due to the phone's auto-correct it sent it as...

Hello I am meeting with my nose
