Abstract/Artist Statement

We are creating a pair of motion-sensing gloves, also known as virtual reality gloves for their use in applications such as virtual reality, tele- operation of robotics, and video games. These gloves will use flex resistors and electronic accelerometers and gyroscopes as sensors. This means the gloves will be able to detect finger curvature and hand position and orientation. They will be also be able to detect both the hand's location as well as where it is pointing. The gloves will be battery-powered and will transmit wirelessly to a computer, where a demo program will process the data and display a pair of hands whose motions correspond to the user's movements. We will be demonstrating tasks such as browsing files and manipulating buttons in a virtual environment.
