    This is 'Screengrab', a video short made using multiple printed screencaps of some dude's hands, which then become part of the movie. At least I think -- I think that's what I watched. Honestly, I have no clue. Films are always hard for me and more often than not I'm left as... / Continue →

    This is a tattoo of pirate Monkey D. Luffy from the anime/manga series One Piece in his 'Gear Third' giant hand form (I read the wiki) with the tattoo recipient's hand also acting as Luffy's. That's pretty clever, right? Maybe not as clever as an octopus, but a friend told me... / Continue →

    I happen to know finger vibrators have existed for awhile because I remember going to buy vitamins at Target (that's my story and I'm sticking to it) and seeing that Trojan was even selling one. That one wasn't nearly powerful enough for my needs though so I wound up giving it... / Continue →

    Decent being a relative term of course. This is one of the three fingers cut from Galileo's hand in 1737 when his body was being moved to its final resting place after spending almost a hundred years at a temporary memorial (he died in 1642). Wow, who the hell cuts the fingers... / Continue →

    JESUS, STOP CUTTING YOUR THUMBNAIL SO SHORT. This is the Guillotine Ring (aka The Divorce) from Vagabond Jewelry. You have to constantly hold its little chain in your hand because if you let go it'll cut your finger off. No, no it won't. You will bleed though. And bleeding... / Continue →

    This is a robotic hand created by the folks at the University of Tokyo's Ishikawa Oku Lab that never loses at paper-rock-scissors. How? By reading your hand then responding with the winning gesture in less than a millisecond. Whatever, I could still beat it. Ready? One, tw... / Continue →

    Seen here ready to shake hands in the biblical sense, a Japanese robot designed to reproduce human-like handshakes prepares itself for a fistful of dong at a recent trade show. Oh man, I'd hate to the guy behind the curtain pretending to have the robot hand! This comes by way... / Continue →

    2012 Thumb-Wresting World Champion -- I'm calling it. This is James Byrne. PSYCHE -- it's just his hands. James lost his left thumb in a carpentry accident, and, after a botched attempt to reattach it, had it replaced with a big toe and NOT a lucky rabbit's foot despite that... / Continue →

    Ever wish you could move your fingers involuntarily? Hell no, that's how people wind up stabbing themselves (alternatively, running with scissors -- it's a no-no, kids). But did that stop researchers at the University of Tokyo from packing the technology into a wristband? It... / Continue →
