Learn to make a finger bend sensor with LEDs on Kobakant:
This project uses the open design for gLove Mono by Zoe Romano and integrates a felt & velostat bend sensor on the middle finger. A lilypad arduino is programmed to read the analog sensor value of the fabric bend sensor, and trigger 1, 2 or 3 LED lights to light up depending on how much the finger is bent. This example project was made for the codemotion workshop titled Arduino meets Wearables.
