Over the years, third-party products have helped to drive the progression of mobile phones, and now, French student Marc Teyssier and his team are looking to give smart phones an appendage. With hopes to change the way we interact with our phones, the Mobilimb is a finger-like attachment that plugs in through the micro USB port. It uses five servo motors to power the attachment, which can tap your hand to notify, can be used as a joystick, a kickstand, or even just a handle. The product also changes how phones interacts with our world, giving it the power to drag itself across a desk. Check out the full video above to see the latex skin, and a fur sheath options for the Mobilimb.
