Giant robot hand



The hand in question is 25 feet long, weighs 5,000 pounds and was built in just 12 days entirely out of scrap and recycled parts by the international team of Doyle Shuge, Justin Gray, Conrad Karlson and Jens Schendel, under the direction of veteran “machine performance” artist Christian Ristow of Robochrist Industries.

The fingers are segments of old I beams, the forearm is the modified truss of an ancient digging machine, and the entire hydraulic system was assembled from junkyard salvage. Plumbing and cables were ripped from the walls of the old shipbuilding warehouse where the hand was constructed.
