Tales of Human Upgrades: Jerry Jalava's USB FingerAdam Frucci11/10/09 3:11pmFiled to: This cyborg lifeUSB fingerUSBBionic92EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink Jerry Jalava was riding his motorcycle home from work one day, when a deer ran in front of him. Long story short, he lost half his index finger. So, of course, he replaced it with a USB flash drive. The USB drive isn't permanently fused to his finger, unfortunately. Instead, it's inside a rubber tip that he fits onto the nub of his finger. Eventually, however, he's hoping to upgrade it to a more truly bionic upgrade. Until then, he still gets to carry around a Linux distribution in the tip of his finger, and you don't. Maybe someday, friends.
