Art: it means different things to different people. And to Nick Ramage, it means creating these £600 (~$830) Fingers Mk III mechanical sculptures. Honestly, I don’t know if I’m more surprised that they exist at all, or that there were Mk I and Mk II Fingers that came before this.
Powered by 2 AA batteries, the disembodied hand endlessly taps its fingers on the surface it rests on until those batteries die, or someone gets scared enough to throw the hand out an open window or smack it with a hammer. Nick mentions he used his own hand as the model to cast the resin fingers, so do you think we could lift his fingerprints to plant at the scene of the crime when we steal the Mona Lisa?
Clearly, this a must-have desk accessory if you’re an evil villain operating from a secret snowy mountain base in the Urals. James Bond sitting across from you, this hand sculpture quietly tapping on your desk while you pause for a moment of suspense before mashing the big red button that drops him into the yeti pit below. Wait, did we just – somebody call Hollywood, tell them we just wrote From Russia with the Spy Who Never Loved Me for them.
