About Hand It!
Hand It! reveals the language of hand and arm gestures. We all know this language, it’s just a matter of how often we practice it. Hand It! is here to help by providing the web’s first manual for exploring the language of hand and arm gestures.
It’s “Wikipedia for hand gestures.”
The types of gestures we use can be compared to the types of words we use:
- Dictionary/literature-accepted – Basketball Steeple
- Culturally-significant – Thumbs Up
- Regionally-originated – Shaka Sign
- Slang – Fingerstache
- Jargon – the systems used by scuba divers, stock market traders, or sign language.
- Symbolic – “The Wu“
Feel free to make up your own gesture or talk about one that has significance to your life.
