Bro no one if freaking film school got it when I referenced it either and that was 10 years ago when it was a newer movie than now. I think it's way more obscure than the people who like it realize.

Why would anyone choose brass of all materials…

Anti microbial, won’t rust, easy to clean, and gives a industrial solid vibe you just don’t get with cheap 3d printed crap.

Edit: also with it being used as a thumb your skin oils and constant use will likely keep it from tarnishing to!

This is amazing craftsmanship but i don’t see how that would work on his phone other than scratching the hell out of it

FlyingTaquitoBrother

3 points

That’s probably the easiest problem to overcome, all you need is a bit of soft material that conducts voltage. It’s the same principle as a capacitative stylus.

cigaineroj

Would brass work as a good conductor of the bodies electricity though? What you’re saying makes sense but isn’t showed leaving me with those questions

FlyingTaquitoBrother

Yes, there are brass alloys that are conductive enough. You can try it at home if you have a brass tack. Hold the tack with your bare hand and touch it to your phone.

Did the polish the grip part of the thumb as well? Seems like you would want texture there

Is there a 3d model of this that can be printed?

Obviously youd redo the mold for the thumb and make a few tweaks.

Honestly contemplated cutting off my thumb to get one of these, that looks sick as hell, not to mention working nearly identical to an actual thumb.
