Shortcut is a prototype wristband for amputees to use to operate a computer mouse. It swipes, clicks and zooms via a sensor on the wearable technology. Shortcut is designed to make prosthetic hands more facile when working with digital technology, taking simple hand gestures that most amputees can still trigger through a phenomenon called phantom hand and mapping them onto the most basic computer commands–moving the cursor, left and right clicking, and scrolling.
