So I did what anyone else would do: demand to measure their hands so I could see if their feelings about the Joy-Con were based on…
Closeups on hands might seem like too small a detail to become a trademark of a director’s visual style, but looking back on Nolan’s oeuvre shows just how much they reveal about his characters.
Apple! Apple! Apple! Yesterday, you were probably too busy gawking at Cupertino's precious new watch and giant smartphones to notice anything else that happened in the world of technology. There's no shame in that. But if you were paying attention to the 2014 Intel Developers Conference in San Francisco, you might…
If, like many of us, your hands are too small to to comfortably use the Galaxy Note 3's giant 5.7-inch display, you're in luck. Android Central has uncovered a hidden tiny screen mode for your tiny baby dwarf hands.
In 2002, scuba diver Tim Yarrow set a record for the longest time spent underwater after spending 10 days submerged in a tank in Johannesburg shopping center. When he finally emerged, his hands were spectacularly wrinkled.
So, uh... cat bites are pretty bad, as it turns out. I was in the ER yesterday, after my sweet cat Franny sunk a tooth into the top of my left hand, causing it to swell up like a balloon. I'm now on a strong antibiotic and some stronggg painkillers, but it's still a baseball mitt-sized mit that hurts like hell in any…

Sumo wrestlers: they're huge. The huger the better. End of story, right?
Scientists know a lot about the body, but they don't know everything. Take, for example, the pruning that occurs when you spend too much time in the water. Scientists don't know why these wrinkles occur only on the hands and feet.
We love design at Gizmodo. It's one of our things. But what happens when design doesn't love us back, comes alive one night (I dunno, because of the debt ceiling or something) and decides to strangle us in our sleep?
The dummy-proof, interactive feel of tablets makes them a natural for kids. But letting your brat actually get his grubby, possibly poop-covered mitts on your delicate iPad? It's probably for the best that we now have a tablet designed specifically for kids.
I'd rather have a hook if I lost my hand in some sort of freak accident, but realize that's not exactly conducive to typing. Rather than chucking in the tech-blogging for piracy, Mark Stark's prosthetic hand is a worthy alternative.

Charles Darwin once speculated that the use of stone tools by our ancient ancestors had profoundly influenced the evolution of our hands. Now, 140 years later, we've discovered that, once again, Darwin knew exactly what he was talking about.
There are Neil's. And there are Buzz's. And Pete Conrad's. And Alan Shepard's. These are the hands of the Apollo astronauts, the plaster casts created to make their custom gloves in Houston, Texas, 1968. High five!
Apple seems obsessed with researching methods to identify users of iPhones, iPads and other iOS devices. The last effort is a patent that describes a device with sensors capable of figuring out the user's hand shape and adjusting the device's settings and buttons based on the user's profile.
