Hands don’t just express and communicate, they can also identify. Here’s a collection of some of the most recognizable hands in movie history.
We are getting easier ways to interact with computers using hand gestures. Far more intuitive than keyboard and mouse inputs, gesture controls for touch screen devices allow for smooth navigation and a rockin’ Hand It time using a mobile device.
Leap Motion, a device that plugs into your USB port and allows you to control your computer with hand and finger gestures, is something that will likely skyrocket the progress of gesture-controls. Just plug the controller into a USB port and install some software to transform using a computer into a Hand It-friendly experience. It’s $70 and available for pre-order.
Visit their website to check out this amazing device. The possibilities of real-world applications to any number of fields ranging from medicine to modelling appear to be endless. And ultimately, it’s another step toward a world where our hand gestures will become powerful assets that allow us to achieve great things.
Saw this on imgur, did a little research, and found out about Jonty Hurwitz, a Hand It-friendly sculptor/engineer. These pieces look like objects plucked straight from a surreal copper factory, but reveal their true form in a cylindrical mirror. Pretty crazy that the reflection is the true image. This is definitely a case of hands messing with our minds.
Who’s going to take out the trash? Rock
Who’s going to clean up the dishes? Paper
Who gets to sleep on the beds in the hotel? Scissors
Make a fist and you have rock. Stick your hand out flat for paper. Hold your index and middle fingers out in a v shape for scissors. Rock breaks scissors, scissors cut paper, and paper cover rocks. No one move is better than the other making this a truly egalitarian game.
When you need to make a fair decision quickly, Rock Paper Scissors, also known as roshambo, is the best way to do it.
It’s a hell of a lot better than wasting time fighting, yelling, and attacking your friends with f-bombs. It’s an impartial judge that everybody listens to. Who ever argues about the results? Nobody does, because it’s impossible to question the results of Rock Paper Scissors. Play a best two out of three, or three out of five game if you want airtight results for making a decision.
Think you’re above using a “simple” hand game? Well, it was used in a legal context when a federal judge ordered opposing attorneys to use the game to settle a dispute. Rock Paper Scissors is greater than any argument a lawyer can muster, so you ca
Rock paper scissors competitions take place worldwide. Seriously, look some up. Cash prizes can get up to $50,000; that’s a serious amount of coin for a game we all learn in childhood.
Add dynamite to play as a trump card. I’ve heard fire can be used only once in your life for a quick win and water can be used as a way to defeat fire. There’s a version of the game that includes “lizard” and “Spock.” With a little bit of creativity, this game can be expanded upon and brought into tons of fun directions. Just make sure your opponents are aware of these new rules beforehand, otherwise they will use their perfectly positioned Paper-hand to slap the shit outta you.
Do you use strategy when playing rock paper scissors, or are you a random thrower?
Technically, writing words on your hands is somewhat of a Hand It “cop-out.” It’s akin to playing Amazing Grace during a montage of puppies being reunited with their owners- the functional/emotional effect of one should be able to exist independently from the other.
But I love Daft Punk, this is a very creative (and largely watched) series of choreographed gestures to the aforementioned Daft Punks, and the name of this website would fit snugly in another one of their songs:
“Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail – upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick – erase it…”
Hand it, Hand it, Hand it, Hand it.
~HAND IT CHALLENGE~
Use the Daft Punk “pyramid” hand gesture to start a conversation with a stranger.
