LaCie intros the CurrenKey: a flash drive destined to be lost


A guitarist for a British band, The Long Blondes, suffered a stroke some time ago and has been unable to use his right, or fretting hand since (he’s a lefty). However, the modern neuroscience has provided him with effective therapy in the form of a crazy-ass mecha-glove (the Saebo-Flex) that holds your hand in a “ready” position, then assists you mechanically when you choose to grasp something. This way, Mr. Cox can use his hand essentially as he normally would, and start remapping the cortical area that was damaged by his stroke.

Wouldn’t this thing be awesome if they mounted it on a Power Glove? The morale boost would be off the charts, plus they could play Super Glove Ball while they recovered.
