When you think about it, the human body is like the best designed "product" there is. It is incredible what the body can do. Hands are particularly amazing, especially to me as an artist and designer. Every one on the planet is unique, yet perfectly suited for each person's use. Hands can crush and caress, create and destroy. They can hold and maneuver the brush that created the Mona Lisa, they can carve a block of raw material into a famous sculpture, they can design and build amazing architecture and create the tools needed to do what they cannot do themselves. So, it's no wonder that hands have inspired so many products out there now. Here are a few that I've always thought were clever, showcasing the many talents of "the hand!"
