About

A power glove that let’s you sculpt stone by hand

Happaratus is a ‘power glove’ that makes it possible to shape and sculpt hard materials by hands. Developed in close collaboration with artisans and craft experts from various disciplines, the project takes an experimental approach to increasing the power and creative capabilities of the human hand as a crafting tool, with the potential for changing both tools and workflows in future craft practice.
