A Thumb Extender is the Only iPhone 6 Plus Accessory You Need

By Gerald Lynch on at

There are lots of great big phones out there, from the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to the new iPhone 6 Plus. While big-screened phones are easy on the eye, they're not so easy on the thumbs, which have to do a fair bit or stretching once a handset goes over the 5-inch mark. If only there was a way to make our thumbs that little bit longer...


Yep, it was only a matter of time before a crazy Japanese gadget manufacturer would come up with some sort of ridiculous solution to the stubby-thumbed problem. Thanko's thumb hood adds an extra 15mm of reach to your dumpy digit, and features a conductive tip to ensure it will work with all capacitive touchscreens.

Looking at it from another angle, it may serve a few other purposes too...

If you're interested in picking one up, you can try to navigate Thanko's equally-crazy website, which has it priced up at 1,480 yen, which is a little over £8 before you factor in shipping. [Thanko]
