Thumb extender for big phones

Those surprised to find themselves unable to type one-handed on the new, larger iPhone 6 Plus can thank Thanko for the solution: the Yubi Nobiiru thumb extender, available now from the Japanese gadget shop.

It's not just a rubbery sheath, as it includes an all-important conductive trace and tip to ensure that a capacitative touchscreen responds accurately to movements. The device adds 1.5cm to the user's reach, weighs 11 grams, and costs about $13.
