Haven't posted in a while, Mark has been busy, I got lots to catch up on....
After confessing to Jojo that I've just spent £114 on hardware, I had to talk real fast. As with most of my ideas, she thought it was stupid like a drop-kicked baby mule.
The concept is simple. Think Minority Report, except less Cruise, more coolz.
My goal is to create an input device able to be worn on the hand with near-infinite possibilities. One way to do this was to use LED lights on the fingertips of a glove and wii-motes to read the signals. But this seemed too restrictive. I'm still not giving that one up yet though. If my preferred method fails, I may yet use this.
The solution I settled on was to use accelerometers on the back of the palm and fingertips to measure movements. In my search I found what I believe to be the perfect pieces in the form of the Arduino Lilypads.
This is still in infantile stages, but keep posted for new developments.
Some photos to whet your appetite...
