Excerpt from the article:

A few years ago, Taos, N.M.-based artist and roboticist Christian Ristow was at a festival and felt there was a lack of interactive machinery that prioritized the operator’s experience and “violence, of the fun, recreational variety.” His answer to these deficits was Hand of Man, a 14,000-pound, 26-foot-long hydraulically activated hand and forearm capable of picking up and crushing cars.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
