Fuckfinger Exoskeleton

Weil man im Jahr 2017 kaum mehr die Kraft für einen anständig ausgestreckten Mittelfinger aufbringen kann, hat Dániel Cseh ein Exoskelett dafür gebaut, den Demagógiaprotektor – „a response to political bullshit“. Damit man auch 2018 noch kraftvoll stinkefingern kann. Fuck it, wie großartig! (via Neural)

The middle finger exoskeleton is a response to political bullshit. Powered by a servomotor and Google’s speech recognition capabilities, it helps its wearer react to a predefined set of phrases and sentences by flipping the bird.

The 3D printed device is adjustable to the wearer, and so is the vocabulary, which – in the advent of alternative facts and post-factual politics – may never be complete. Overall, it's an attempt to sensitize the person wearing it, who may already be stuck in indifference to the empty phrases of the post-truth political rhetoric.
