En-Hand / Enhanced Toy Hand


En-hand is a gadget responding to COVID-19. It is a simple and inexpensive enhanced toy hand that helps remain physical touch while keeping distance safely. It can mimic many of the tasks our actual hands complete, such as opening doors; or carrying a cu of coffee in a playful way.

En-hand has a simple structure and is made of polycarbonate, which is affordable and durable. En-hand’s one step system means it is very easy to use and get comfortable with.
