Touch needs a finger

There might be no way to use touchpads on a laptop or use a new fangled iPhone if you don’t have a finger.

Suck UK has a stylus made of ‘special space age’ silicone material that exactly mimics the electrical resistance and dexterity of a human finger. It might work with PDAs, laptops and iPhones. But you need a hand to hold a stylus.

Phone Fingers offers a finger-sleeve that will activate the sensors in a touchpad, but it doesn’t work without inserting a fleshy finger.

I check this blog only twice per year, but this a post that pulls my heart. Any solutions? Pedometer for the iPhone?
