Let's say you're in the kitchen, quickly stirring the sauce to keep it from burning. Now, you need to scroll down on that fantastic recipe sitting on your KomandoTab tablet. This new device would let you scroll down on the tablet page without having to risk burning the sauce. You can easily stir and scroll without ever taking your hands off the spoon and pot handle.

Or let's say you're in a big business meeting and need to quickly send an email. You are meeting with big clients and don't want to seem rude while on your phone. What if you could tap your thumbnail instead of touching your phone to send that email? It could be possible soon.

How is that even possible? There's a new accessory in the works from researchers at the MIT Media Laboratory. I don't think it's the most stylish accessory out there, but it could one day be the most useful!

It works with your phone or tablet, and it packs an impressive amount of technology into a tiny, tiny gadget. In fact, it's so tiny, it fits on your thumbnail.
