hands.wtf

At the beginning of 2015, with a little bit of free time in the studio, we gave ourselves an assignment: to create the dumbest thing we could think of. That turned out to be Hands.wtf. Enter three letters and if you match one of the 37 words in our completely arbitrary database, our hands will let you know.

An accidental internet phenomenon, Hands.wtf appeared on the homepage of Product Hunt, Kottke.org and Creativity Online on the day it launched, spawning over 500k individual queries over its first 24 hours.
