It's a design patent, not a utility patent, so it only covers the appearance of the gadget, not its' functionality.

An articulated finger would be more effective, and his patent doesn't cover that!

Almost as good as a mirror to reflect his condemnation back at himself. What a dastardly way of thinking!

I wish my boss had one of these! When he points a finger at me he will also be pointing at himself!

There is one thing that is more gross than you picking your nose and thats when somebody else is picking your nose. This invention is close to that..

If your nose itches, it needs picked. Fingers are handy and do a very effective job. If someone is offended by someone picking their nose, then they are too brain dead to appreciate when someone needs to allieviate a distraction. Just a thought.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
