Prideaux and his prosthetic arm
Trevor Prideaux, born without his left forearm, used to use his smartphone by balancing it on his prosthetic arm or putting it on a flat surface. "It became clear that this piece of technology was not ideally suited to be used with only one hand," he told The Telegraph of smartphones.
So the catering manager and father of one from Somerset, England, came up with a better idea--integrating a smartphone dock right into his prosthetic device. Since he started wearing his custom-made prosthetic, calling and texting from his Nokia C7 has gotten a lot easier and more convenient.
