How to Stop Time With a Tech Glove #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #Arduino #DIY

Tech Glove Stops Time

One of my favorite books when I was younger was A Wrinkle in Time, and tessering (time travel) became part of my vocabulary. Disney is launching a new movie version of the book in March and this project I discovered on Hackaday just seems like the perfect accessory for opening night. Maker MadGyver has created a glove that uses an adjustable strobe to create a stop motion effect on moving things. The action of the glove is controlled by movement according to the post.

An on-board accelerometer toggles the strobe in response to a shake, and the frequency is changed by twisting the glove left or right.

Check out the video for the magic with the fan blades.

MadGyver has posted details on Github and main parts include an Arduino Nano, an accelerometer, a white LED and lens, as well as a potentiometer and DC step up converter. So far people are loving the glove with the only critique being bulk. One of the best things about open sourcing any project is the fact that anyone can jump in to make it their own. So, looking forward to the future versions of this time control glove. If you like the idea of lights and gloves, you should also check out our practical Bike Glove project that uses a Circuit Playground microcontroller. Let people know which direction you are turning with a flick of the wrist— be brighter and ride safer.
