Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

After being rushed to hospital and examined, he was told that he would have to have half of one of his fingers amputated. Jalava, decided to make the most of a bad situation and replaced the finger with a
USB Drive!

The prosthetic finger  looks and feels like a real finger, however peel back the top and voia, 2 gigabyte worth of portable storage!

“When I’m using the USB, I just leave my finger inside the slot and pick it up after I’m ready.” Jalava says
