Experts have released an image of what our hands would look like if they evolved for gaming and the image is pretty scary…
Gamings popularity has increased over the years and even has individuals playing as their full-time job. With technology growing at a rapid rate and with more players logging on, what exactly would our hands look like if we evolved?
SlotsWise partnered with experts to reveal the 3D model showcasing what we would look like when gripping a controller. The ring finger and pinky have decreased significantly and the other two fingers have lengthened. This gives us rusty spoon vibes!
Managing director of Cornelius Creative, Simon Corenlius explained,
Manufacturers are responsible for designing controllers that lessen the impact on our physiology. Controllers, as they stand now, are ergonomically designed, however, the increased immersive experience of some games require more buttons to play.
“An increase of buttons on the controllers means our fingers, specifically thumb, index and middle are doing more work and must stretch further. I would therefore expect an evolution of our hands to include a lengthening of those fingers, with faster reaction times.”
“The ring and little finger would recede and possibly become more claw-like to wrap around the controller.”
It is crazy to think that technology has evolved so much that it could have an effect on our own evolution as humans. Don’t be too surprised if we have grandchildren with incredibly long fingers!
