Title: Introducing: "The Fiinger"
Post by: brentrs on February 15, 2008, 05:34:22 PM
Yes, that's right, I said "Fiinger". 

Literally, a blob of electrical tape, surrounding a button battery and some speaker wire, formed into a "finger glove".  The LED is pointing backwards, because well, that's where my wiimote sits (behind and slightly to the right). I  put the "switch" in the fingertip so when you press on the screen you light the LED.  Oh, and to protect my nice new monitor, I added some old sock to the tip.   Yes, sock.  This thing is so very very cheap and was a wonderful way to spend 20 minutes.  I've included my first finger drawing, because it is so very ugly, its funny.  Overall, it works great.  Best use of the internet ever.
