The future is a robotic finger browsing the Web forever

Madrid-based design agency Monobo created this robot finger – Random User – which drives around the desk, incessantly tapping a vintage mouse and mindlessly browsing the Web.

It could be a comment on our screen-infected lives or just really, really dumb. The designers claim it’s “a special user that ignores UX strategies…” but I can relate, little plastic finger. I too feel that listless sometimes.*
