Pi Glove Part 2 #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Part 2 of The Pi Glove project!

The Pi Glove is back! It was always the plan to develop the Pi Glove with ‘modules’ for various uses, starting with sports and home assistance. This module addresses the home assistance element of the glove’s development. Image if you were or maybe do struggle with a disability and you awake in the night. The Pi Glove allows the user to first check the time which is read out, a light can be turned on with a simple finger movement and if required an emergency text can be sent to a carer, family member or the provider of other medical assistance.

27th January 2015: The second button to test was the ‘Lights On’ button, this turns a lamp on, imagine it was dark and you woke up disorientated. You have a disability so find it hard to move to turn a light on. However, a simple finger movement and click of the Glove and the lamp is turned on. This failed first as the GPIO pin 17 used on the Glove is also required by the Energenie hardware to control the lights. I tested several other Pin numbers and they worked. Basically I could not use the original GPIO pin 17 and used another instead. Finally I added the SMS functionality to the third button and tested it. All three buttons and functions are working. See the sneak peek video opposite for the Glove in action.
