Extra Thumb Project

Keywords: Human Augmentation, Prosthetics

Project Description


Inspired by the twelve fingered pianist from the movie Gattaca, this page contains an ongoing project of mine to add extra appendages to humans. I’ve started with an extra thumb. The idea is to control it with the EEG signals using the Backyard Brains Kit which would truly make it an extra body part controlled by the brain.

Extra Thumb #wip (1)

This is a work in progress. Just stiched a prosthetic finger to a glove and looking into how to actuate and control it.
