Genius idea: man builds smartphone into prosthetic arm

Friday, October 28, 2011

From The Telegraph:
A British man has become the world's first ever patient to have a smartphone docking system built into his prosthetic arm.

Trevor Prideaux, who was born without his left arm, used to have to balance the smartphone on his prosthetic arm or put it on a flat surface to use it.

But now Mr Prideaux, 50, can call and text his loved ones without moving the mobile, which is embedded into his fibreglass and laminate limb.

The catering manager sought help from medical experts and communications chiefs at Nokia to build the special prosthethic.

They carefully carved a phone shaped fibrecast cradle into the skin-coloured prototype, allowing his Nokia C7 to sit inside it.
