Originally, an art installation by AY-O, a Japanese artist.
However, since that time, competitive fingerboxing has become quite popular. Professional fingerboxers can use up to 8-hole fingerboxes. Obviously, anything greater than 8-holes is purely for entertainment purposes and trickery (Like the Harlem Globetrotters.)

Proponents of fingerboxing assert that it improves confidence and dexterity.
Just got myself a new six-hole suede-lined fingerbox. Anyone want to buy my old four-hole?
