Finger-nose stylus: Peck at your touchscreen

275x250.jpg A designer has created what he claims is a perfectly sensible solution to the problem of trying to control a touchscreen phone without a free hand… a stylus for your nose.

Dominic Wilcox says he often found himself wanting to use his touchscreen phone while in the bath, but because his fingers were all too often wet, he couldn't.

But when he realised he could navigate by pressing the phone against his nose, he decided creating a finger-nose stylus would be the logical next step.

After various trial and error he invented this odd-looking device which he says is the ideal way to send a tweet from the bath… should you do something so impressive in the bath you need to tell the world.

Speaking of his creation, Wilcox said: "I sometimes use my touchphone in the bath. I know it’s stupid.

"One problem I encounter is that when put my left hand in the water without thinking, it gets wet and unusable for touchscreen navigation.

"It is too risky to try to hold and navigate with one hand. I found that I could use my nose to scroll but I couldn’t see where my nose was touching precisely.

"It was at that point that I came up with this idea of a nose extension ‘finger’ that would allow navigation while my phone is firmly held by one hand."
