    Is it just me, or just because its Friday, that the image for the video looks like a black penis in a box coming (?!) out of his hand...

    I dunno but I expect if my phone started doing what it's doing at 22 seconds in at work, I might get fired.

    And then get a job in Ann Summers.


    EDIT: This reminds me of a scene from Red Dwarf... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1o78X0BQ5k (Probably NSFW.... depending on your employer).

    and people get paid to make this stuff ?
    " look I've made a finger for my phone ...boss what will it do ?
    nothing why should it ... boss- your fired
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true
    (Cassandra, in Agamemnon by Aeschylus)

    The MobiLimb can be used in three classes of application as; a tool that can be manipulated to control both physical and virtual objects, a partner reacting to user actions, or a medium providing feedback such as strokes, taps, and similar feedback

    I'd have reported it as such, including the random other posts clearly copypasta'd from random internet pages.
