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. 

Just in case you were wondering, yes, Jerry is already planning on upgrading his finger technology as soon as possible. The best part is that he got the idea from his doctor who made a creative joke after surgery.
