The 26-ton Hand of Man is controlled via a telemetry glove.

Christian Ristow’s 26-ton mechanical hand and forearm made an appearance at Maker Faire Bay Area 2013 this past month and MAKE Senior Editor Goli Mohammadi was there to experience the Hand of Man—firsthand. The giant robotic hand is controlled by a human sized glove that clenches and smashes in response to the user’s movements.
