Thumbs not big enough? We have the answer!

iPhones, Smartphones and Tablets are already a major part of our technological lives, with many of these devices now the standard rather than the exception in our urban world. Unlike many pieces of modern technology, smartphones aren’t getting more compact – they´re just getting bigger and bigger!

Smartphones now seem to fill in as phones, portable games consoles and lightweight laptops – very convenient and useful. Touch screens have again become hugely popular, with keyboards of any kind seemingly facing their dying breath – however this has caused an interesting problem. Many people’s hands and specifically thumbs are apparently too small to quickly scroll up and down on the newest devices.

Japanese retailers have now seen this as a major marketing opportunity, with the arrival of extendable thumbs that are nearly five centimetres in length – a seemingly wacky but beautifully simple idea! Japanese electronics company Thanko now offers an artificial ‘thumb’ that costs just over €10.

Don’t be surprised if you start seeing colourful thumb extensions on the streets of Spain as the norm, in the very near future!

Advertising is now something that reaches readers on a vast array of mobile devices and anyone can scroll through information on the online directory site using their extended thumb, or just their natural thumb, whenever they desire!
