A discussion of oddities

You get your tube arms after orientation
"Picker's Aid" US Patent 4,491,212 (1985)

A fine example of form-following-function. We have a set of tube arms, secured via a funnel to the hand (finger straps for stability and control, shown in figure 5). It is absurd looking, and seeing a field of workers wearing them would be, let's say, memorable. But it is very resonable in function: Allowing the user to simply drop berries and nuts down the funnel, through the tubes, and into the collection area without any superfluous hand motion. Touché sir.
