If you're regularly trying to juggle Google Maps in one hand and bags of shopping/gadgets/kittens in the other then fear not, for University of Calgary researchers have come to your aid with their Fat Thumb software.
While a normal touch from your thumb tip behaves as normal, pressing more of your thumb against the surface of your smart phone translates sliding movements into pinch-to-zoom commands.
An answer to the ultimate first world problem? Perhaps, but as screen sizes continue to increase, so too do the number of smashed displays as a result of desperate one-handed claw gestures.
Check out the video below – we're hoping that Fat Thumb will graduate from its testing phase and make its way into our smartphones in the not too distant future.
