The idea behind this video is to apply the principle developed by the professor of robotics Masahiro Mori and called Uncanny Valley. To make the spectator feel uneasy, the theory says that something which imitates life but has some slightly di erent details could provoque an uncanny feeling.
The environment created for the video is a table and stencils, suggesting a self-made or amateur laboratory. The “hand” subject of the video is in every point similar to a real hand, except the material does not have the same reactions as muscles and bones. It visibly su ered some relatively violent actions, and the reason is not known.
