Futurist Hand Project/ Projeto Mao Futurista



During my high school, back in 2015, Marcelo Moretti, who is a very close friend was immensely creative and taught me one very important lesson from Alb. Einstein actually from a book he recently had read that time:

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”
Albert EinsteinWhat Life Means to Einstein (1929)

So on those daily exercises of creativity, he created several, at least a dozen futurist hands and call it, The Futuristic  Hands Project. Basically, the premise is that: based on several occupations, our hand would evaluate from that.


  1. Motorcycle driver
    For example, a motorcycle driver would have stronger index fingers and the other fingers would combine (minimal, ring, and medium). The index and the thumb would then be stronger than before.
  2. Firefighters
    Their fingers would be stronger and resistant to fire, but also the minimal and the ring finger would combine, as well as, index and medium. So they would be able to climb faster.

And so on …

Recently I’ve seen some prototypes of robotic arms that somehow implement similar ideas and it’s interesting to see that sometimes, and android is very interesting on this part:
