Rock out at home with this candle made in the shape of the devil’s horns. The heavy metal hand gesture has been perfectly replicated by CandleHand using fragrance-free paraffin wax dyed black. It only burns for about an hour, though, so you might not ever want to light it. If you’re feeling a bit more angst, they also make a middle-finger candle.
Are your fingers not long and creepy enough? Perhaps you could use some finger extensions. Maker The Q took a bunch of wooden popsicle sticks and glued them together to make a sort of plywood that he cut into claw shapes. He then cut out a cavity for his fingertips, and added a hinge mechanism to make them move.
Industrial waterjets can be strong enough to slice through metal. So the idea of sticking your hand into one seems like a terrible idea. That’s why the guys at the Waterjet Channel used ballistic gel dummy hands instead of human hands to see just how horrific the carnage of 60,000 PSI of H2O would be.
Choreographer Sadeck Waff specializes in tutting – the art of movement through the hands, arms, and head. This jaw-dropping performance celebrates the magic around us, as a group of 64 talented tutters join their conductor in perfect synchrony, reflecting the nature of both individuality and our place in the world.
Among his many creations, Paul from Jackman Works has made some ridiculously large hand tools. Now, to show off his new X-Carve Pro CNC machine, he built a pair of giant hands. We were hoping he might try and use them to pick up his oversize tools, but they seem pretty awkward to wield given their weight.
If there’s one thing we’ve all learned in recent times, it’s that we must wash our hands. We’ve already seen how dirty they can get, and this amusing animated PSA from Toronto creative studio Chop Haus shows us some even filthier mitts that need to clean up their acts before touching anything.
