An invention that really would need to be used to be appreciated.

Seems kind of dumb, but I needed one of these things this morning trying to do some cabinet work by myself. I constantly found myself in the wrong place with a tool just out of reach, or... with too few hands. One hand for a measuring tape, one for a level, one for a drawer rail, one for a marker, one for a drill, one to hold a screw. It was... really frustrating.

It is a sleeper genius invention of the century. Anyone heard the phrase, "one armed paper hanger?" That is not referring to a forger being hunted down by THE FUGITIVE. Often, tasks force a person to use odd sequences or algorithms to do simple things. The only reason is that we have two hands and not three.

KInd of... want...

I bet if you just used the thing, pretty soon you would be doing all kinds of crazy things, and really fast. Tying knots, soldering or welding, car repair, plumbing, construction...

A third arm is not a fifth wheel. I bet it could double or triple productivity in certain fields.

Did you ever read the old health insurance claim form, explaining the cause of the accident as "doing the job alone"?
