    From now on, when somebody tells me to “talk to the hand”, I’ll have to look at their hands to figure out if they mean it literally. So awkward.

    I think this would absolutely terrify a number of dogs I know.

    Who says just for the hand?

    For the times when having a life-size doll isn’t convenient. Perhaps when traveling.

    Since Señor Wences is mentioned in the article, I think now would be a wonderfully appropriate time to turn ‘wences’ into a verb somehow, if nothing else to keep his memory alive. He delighted me as a child, but I fear far to many younger people would have no clue as to who is is. The man lived to an astonishing age of 103, so perhaps hand puppets can keep you healthy.

    This could be worn by children and pets too.
    Then they could get all smart-alecky or nightmarish channeling AI life from the intertubes. not something I’m looking forward to.

     these guys really need to talk to the folks at jim henson’s creature shop. they are way ahead on the technology and the cuddly looking interface already.  those detachable features kind of scare me.  they are the kind of thing that could easily scar a poor child for life – it’s just a few bad dreams away from pan’s labyrinth.

    It should be noted that playing finger games with children is a felony in most states.
