Many years ago, there was a strange children’s TV show featuring a hippy that made puppets out of his fingers and bits of cardboard called Fingerbobs. And some years later, we have the computer equivalent – the USB Dance Mat.
Yes, you can dress up your hand with a cardboard disco dancer, plug in the ‘dancefloor’ via USB and let your fingers do the dancing. The finger pads light up randomly with the music, and you have to follow the pattern, which gets faster and faster as you progress. It might make your hands more agile or it might hasten that arthritis. Either way, it should ease you through a boring Monday.
Available now, it retails for £9.95.
