What Exactly Should You Do with Fingers That Won't Stop Drumming?

Illustration for article titled What Exactly Should You Do with Fingers That Won't Stop Drumming?

As an obsessive compulsive gum-chewer, I never thought to make art of my annoying habit like Nik Ramage. He built a mechanical copy of his hand, which drums its fingers without cessation. Anyone imagining a use for this thing?

Based on Dezeen's description of it, this little gadget is either a pure annoyance or maybe, depending on your imagination, something more useful:

Fingers by Nik Ramage are an eternally tapping mechanical copy of the artist's own hand. At the flick of a switch the resin cast fingers drum rhythmically, until switched off.

What's next? A foot-tapping gadget? Something to say "Ummm, like...you know..." every few moments? [Dezeen]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

When reading the title of this article, I thought the device was actually meant to do the opposite. Put this device on people in meetings who continually tap their fingers and it will zap them every time or something.
