This is the most awkward possible way to unlock your new iPhone

These new devices are getting to know us very intimately.

Since the iPhone 5S was released this week, its TouchID fingerprint unlocking system has been the most talked-about feature. While we’re all contemplating the implications of a database of iPhone users’ fingerprints, people have been trying to unlock the phone in other creative ways. A cat’s paw can unlock the screen, as can other parts of the human anatomy.

The experiment continues via Japan’s RocketNews: A man has apparently locked and then unlocked an iPhone 5S with his nipple. When a different nipple attempted entry, it was denied.

But wait, there’s more! If the iPhone recognizes a nipple, might it also recognize a toe?

Ah, science. No word on whether women’s nipples also unlock the phone, but it never hurts to try. One thing’s for certain: These new devices are getting to know us very intimately.
