“Digital” Calendar

Bre Pettis, avid science & art advocate/activist/aficionado presents us with a clever idea and play on words: Digital Calendar. Get it? Pettis laser-etched a calendar onto his fingernails. I guess it’s accurate dependent on how fast your nails grow.

As featured on ScienceBlog SciencePunk.

I would just like to say one thing about this idea: OW!

I also think he’s left-handed, judging on the accuracy of the right thumb but not the left. *(Note: on second glance the left hand’s calendar simply looks older than the right hand. Hmm…)



Beth Kelley is an applied & digital anthropologist with an overall interest in how people engage with and are impacted by their environments and vice versa. This has manifested itself in many ways, by looking at creativity, playful spaces, built environments, and environmental enrichment, sustainability, design research, and integrative and collaborative models of learning such as through play and hands-on learning.

One thought on ““Digital” Calendar

  1. That’s very clever but quite strange. I wonder how still he had to keep his fingers when they were being laser etched.
