There’s a new, weird accessory now selling in Japan. The thumb-shaped stylus you can see on the image above is especially designed for big smartphones aka phablets, extending one’s finger by 15mm (0.59 inches). That might not sound like much, but should be enough for most folks to reach the far left/right corner of the screen.
Sure enough, wearing one of these will make you look ridiculous but I guess that shouldn’t be a problem in the Land of the rising Sun. Or so we think.
Anyway, the thumb stylus weighs just 11 grams, and is made out of silicon. It’s currently selling for 1,480 JPY, which translates into roughly $15. We’ve no idea whether it will ever make it to the Western hemisphere. And it’s not like we need anything similar…
