Video: Transhumanism Is Here – Man’s Finger Is Also USB Drive

Fact checked

Transhumanism is defined by Wikipedia as “an international cultural and intellectual movement with an eventual goal of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.”

A Finnish computer expert named Jerry Jalava lost part of his finger in a motorcycle accident.  Rather than opting to get a normal prosthetic finger, he chose to make his finger double as a working USB drive.  (Video of the finger in action at the bottom)

BuzzFeed reports:

This story is older, but is recently trending.

Even though it might’ve started as a joke, the 2GB drive is very practical!


Jerry says that people are kind of horrified when they see it at first. But, I don’t know, it’s kind of an upgrade.
