MIT Graduate students have just unveiled NailO, a prototype for a customizable thumbnail accessory that serves as a mini trackpad

Despite the advances made over the past century that have already made our lives easier, such as the washing machine, or the remote on our headphones that lets you change the volume, we still find our thirst for convenience unquenched. We have smartphones, smartwatches, and smartglasses, all designed to meet our demand before we demand it, and still we crave that next step in efficiency. Thankfully, a team of graduate students over at MIT’s Media Laboratory might provide our next synergy fix with their prototype of NailO: a tiny trackpad that fits on your thumbnail.
