Do you love the giant display on your iPhone 6 Plus or Galaxy Note 4 but hate how hard it is to properly use the device with your small hands? Well fear not because Japanese accessory manufacturer Thanko has created something that will let you keep your big display by giving you a large soft silicone thumb extension.

As Android Police points out, the thumb extension will add about 15 millimeters (roughly 0.6 inches) to your thumb’s reach, which will presumably be just enough for you to comfortably reach the top of your device’s display. There’s also a stylus embedded within the tip of the thumb, thus making it ideal for devices such as the Galaxy Note 4 that already support styluses.

The device is selling for just under USD $14, although sadly it appears to only be available in Japan so far. Even so, it’s not hard to imagine Thanko expanding sales to other countries if the thumb proves to be a big hit in Japan — and given what we know about Japanese smartphone users’ love of goofy-looking accessories, we think it stands a pretty good chance.

A video showing off the Thanko thumb’s incredible capabilities and powers follows below.
