Surgeons Turn Man's Finger Into Computer Memory Stick

Talk about being "handy." Plastic surgeons have installed a USB memory stick in the false finger of a 29-year-old computer whiz.

Surgeons developed the gadget after Jerry Javala lost his digit in a motorcycle accident.

The Finnish computer programmer asked doctors in Helsinki to create the removable finger with a memory stick that can be plugged into his computer.

The device contains some of his favorite programs and a copy of the Linux operating system.

"I simply put my finger into the USB port of a computer and pull out the hand if I need it,” Javala explained. “Afterwards the finger goes back on."
