I've seen this demonstrated before, but the individual finger / knuckle reflex testing was new, and damned interesting. I have a hard time making my individual fingers twitch on purpose, the instinctive response working that well is impressive.

Also, this guy seems high as *fuck* to me. Anyone else?

He looks like a drunk/high Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) from The Walking Dead was my first impression.

Is this an accepted torture technique?
It seems like it could work wonders without causing any actual damage. Exactly what an interrogator would want.
You need more convincing rubber hands though.

The whole time I was thinking, "Hit it with a hammer!"

Was not disappointed.

I wouldn't wish this on anyone, but I wonder what would happen if you cut a finger off with a knife. Eeeeia.

You got two penises?

But then again the hand and penis do work together at times sooo... 🤔

What?
Do you mean if they put a penis in the rubber hand, would the real hand reflexively start jerking?

No, if you smash the hand with penis instead of hammer
