Tired Of Smudges On Your iPhone? Get Phone Fingers

If there was an award for the strangest iPhone accessory ever invented, it would go to the makers of Phone Fingers, hands down (no pun intended). The latex fingers were created specifically for the iPhone's touch screen to prevent smudges and fingerprints. And no, this is not a joke.
If there was an award for the strangest iPhone accessory ever invented, it would go to the makers of Phone Fingers, hands down (no pun intended). The latex fingers were created specifically for the iPhone's touch screen to prevent smudges and fingerprints. And no, this is not a joke.Any iPhone owner will tell you that a major disadvantage of having a touch screen-only phone is the smudge factor. Naturally the screen will reflect everything you touched before navigating through the phone's icons. But I wonder how many people would actually resort to wearing black latex finger shields to keep their iPhone screens clean?

Phone Fingers are sold in a bag that contains 25 pieces, guaranteed to last a long time with multiple usage. They cost 9.90 euros, which translates to about $14. What's even more comical is the fact that they come in different sizes: medium for an average-sized index finger and large or extra large for a thumb.

While I don't see myself ever roaming the streets of New York with my fingers covered in black latex, Phone Fingers could become a signature mark for the most passionate followers. I have a feeling the makers of this accessory intentionally wanted iPhone users to stand out from the crowd.

So what will people come up with next? Perhaps face gear for those who wear makeup so it doesn't smear all over the iPhone's screen when they're making a call.
