Wireless Data Gloves – Seen at Maker Faire

Data Glove

PhD student, Kevin Marinelli has developed these “Data Gloves”. Based on an Adafruit 32U4 breakout board and using XBee modules for wireless communication, these gloves allow the user to visually manipulate data representations of complex structures such as protein chains in multi-dimensional space.

Conductive fabric patches on each fingertip and the palm of the glove allow the user to create a multiple unique combinations of finger codes which can be combined with the on-glove motion sensors to manipulate components of the data objects in different ways.
