We had one as well, but I don't remember a glowing hand.  We wore that "thing" out.

Yep...way cool.  I had one !  That sucker would snatch that penny in a jiffy !
The hand was green if I remember correctly.....box was black.

This was a variant of the infamous "Ultimate Machine" created by Dr. Claude Shannon ("the father of Information Theory"). There are many videos of such machines on YouTube; this is one of them.

The hand would slowly creep out of the door, then grab the coin quickly Eventually, my older brother snapped the glowing hand off. I got this with hand puppets of Lily and Herman Munster for Christmas.
