I don't know what to say other than this mechanical wooden hand is awesome. The articulating hand and arm were made by the super talented automatist Keith Newstead. There is nothing in the video description to suggest what form this will ultimately take. The fact that the video is titled "Prototype" leads me to believe that we are waiting for something very, very good!
