“Just to play piano, the brain is running real-time computations on 62 degrees of freedom. It’s incredible to me … [the] precision and control and coordination.” That connection and how our hands and brain are able to work together, the computational load on the brain – it’s a fascinating subject that takes up a lot of Rutter’s day-to-day.
MD&M East in New York. Rutter is an industrial designer and self-proclaimed hand functionality enthusiast. (OK, he also has a PhD.in kinesiology with a specialization in hands.)
