As a computer programmer, Jerry Jalava may be the first to turn his body into a true techie toolbox.  The Finnish man lost a middle finger in a motorcycling accident, and decided to embed a 2 GB memory drive into his prosthetic. The prosthetic finger end is detachable, but his new “fingernail” is as functional as they come.
