I'm missing just over half of my right pinky and I've been looking for some kind of functional prosthetic. Think I found one at a website rcmenterprise.com. Problem is the prosthetic is $6000 but I might be able to get my workmans comp to pay for it. If so I want to make a 3d model and make my own once I get my 3d printer. If your missing a finger check out the site. Pretty cool prosthetic.
I'm missing exactly the same digit, same way. Interested in sharing notes on anything you came up with, I'm working on a prosthetic now.
Check out my newest post "Finger prosthetic" this will be of some help. It is a static prosthesis, I have used this prosthesis for nearly a year, typically under a glove to ensure that it stays on my finger.

Instructions

My good friend Dave from Hammerspace in Kansas City created the mold for Michael. The Mold was then used to cast a Plaster model of Michaels hand. I used Strata Foto to produce the 3D Model of the casting.

check out my instructable "Thumb Prosthesis" @ instructables.com. You can create a finger model just as easily.
Great project! Thingiverse should hold an official challenge. A ring size for Micheal would be helpful.
