Rock Paper Scissors Arduino Glove

This glove lets you play Rock Paper Scissors against an Arduino opponent. The sensors on two fingers along with an accelerometer detect when you play and it puts out its own move on the screen. Even better, this looks like it was done by Grathio who is sporting an Instructables shirt in the video. Nice one! Link via Neatorama

Sensing electromagnetic fields with a glove - how could I manage it? Answered

Basically, I once read about a guy (an electronics professor I think in Kent University) who had some magnetic sensors implanted into his nervous system in his left arm and now he can feel electomagnetic fields as a kind of pressure. I would like to replicate this in glove format, to preclude the need for experimental surgery. I think it could be done by combining a magnetic sensor (do you even get them?) with a vibrating device and placing the resulting component into a glove. Let me know if I'm barking up the wrong tree or if there's a better way to achieve such a thing. I know hardly anything about electronics but I am a quick learner and if you explain well I will remember.

Part 2 of my laser glove question: i have it all hooked up, but am experiencing very low power from the lasers. See more

Ok i posted something related to this project earlier but i got it answered and have a new question. im building a laser-glove for halloween, and i for the most part have it all hooked up; -5 laser pointers in parallel -9v power source, 0.55Ah -600ohms resistance/laser pointer -2 resistors rated at 1.2 & 1.0 kOhm hooked up in parallel to the 9v my problem: generally all of the laser pointers are very weak. i figured i have a little less resistance than i need as is, so if anything they should be overpowered somewhat? *NOTE*: regarding safety concerns, i am going to be wearing the glove under a morph suit, which will very strongly damper the power of the lasers, which is why i want them working at full potential  here is my attempt at the schematic for it. sorry if it is not "correct" but this is how i have it all hooked up more or less:

Accelerometer glove for HID development platform

Anyone interested in a glove with accelerometer built-into every finger and data collected via BLE processor? Would it interest you to develop HID algorithm to replace a mouse for gaming or control to a rc car, or a drone? I'm working on something like this and want to gauge interest level.

If i hook up a laser pointer to a fiber-optic cable, will the laser still exit the cable while lighting it up? Answered

I want to make a power-glove style party glove. I want to hook up laser pointers to each finger, but i figured it would be cooler if i could get the glove to light up. So to save myself some soldering, would i be able to shine the lasers through fiber optic cables to light up the glove itself, while still having the laser beams exit the ends of the fiber optic cables?

Electromegnetic Levatation Glove?

I've seen some devices which use electromagnets controlled by microchips (like this https://www.instructables.com/id/Electromagnetic-Floater/) to levitate small objects. I'm wondering if that same technology could be put into a sort of glove, allowing the user to levitate small metallic or magnetic objects, and maybe even pull or shoot* them? It would have a small electromagnet in each fingertip, as well as a larger one on the palm. All electromagnets could pull upwards on the object if the palm is facing down, and the object was below them. Only the fingertips would pull if it's facing up, and the object is above the palm, (but slightly below the level of the fingertips) The problem would be sensing where the object is, and adjusting the power of each magnet based on that position, and the the position of the electromagnets. *using actual magnetic repulsion would be tricky, but you could, say, have the object sit in the palm of the hand, with fingers outstretched,  then have it attracted to the electromagnets in the fingers, which turn off just as it passes by them. It retains its momentum and shoots out. So, if anyone want to confirm if this is feasible or not (or even want to make it), please post!

how do i put 2 gloves together and make the seal between the two wateright? Answered

I know this is a strange question but i am working on a project and i need to fill a glove with mineral oil and then put another glove inside of that glove so the oil surrounds the hand. the problem i am having with this is the seal i am trying to make it with hot glue by putting the 2 gloves around a cup then putting a ring of hot glue around the inner glove then folding down the lower glove. my first attempt failed and my second has multiple holes that are hard to patch. any ideas on how to do this easily? i only have four gloves 2 for practice and 2 for the prototype which will enter a competition on the 26th.

Detecting Very Slight Tendon Movements In Wrist

I've always had an intense fascination for lucid dreaming. Finding ways to communicate or control outside devices based off the slight body movements that are possible despite the natural paralysis during sleep is a topic of great interest to me. I have several LDs (lucid dreams) each night and through much experimentation have found that with a bit of concentration, I could move my fingers enough to trigger very sensitive buttons (if placed perfectly before falling asleep) or to grip myself (if my hand is placed say, near my neck before intentionally entering a dream from waking) such that the sensation of my fingers reaching my neck would wake me. These experiments were proof enough that if I perhaps had some sort of glove or wrist mounted piezo sensors that are able to detect the individual tendon/finger movements with high enough sensitivity, combined with software that can parse patterns and reliably filter out minor unintentional simultaneous movements for the fingers that are prone to movement when others nearby are moved, it would be possible to establish one way communication with outside devices, the Internet, etc. Input could be in the form of different patterns or even text (tap code, morse code, or through a hybrid allowing use of each digit of the hands) or musical notes (each finger representing a note of a scale with a finger or two used to change octave or to toggle sustain.) As a musician who "writes" his best music within his dreams, this could be quite handy for getting melodies down before they vanish from memory on waking. For example, to activate input, you could perform a simple pattern that is unlikely to be triggered unintentionally. It could be as easy as left thumb flex, right thumb flex repeated in that order several times. From this point, you could use another pattern to choose to trigger an alarm (sound, vibration or electrical shock), or to initiate musical or text recording. There are many different uses that could be explored, and it might even be possible that 2 way communication could be established if a reliable method of transmitting to the dreamer without waking them could be created. This is however beyond the scope of my intentions. I have suffered from sleep paralysis on a nightly basis for over a decade now which can be extremely frightening and last up to several minutes, and during this time I am able to move my fingers as well as shake my head back and forth (which I need to do to break out otherwise the paralysis will persist until I'm pulled into a nightmare.) My solution to these terrifying experiences was wearing a heart rate monitor with an alarm that goes off past a certain BPM, which only happens when I am frightened. Now that I am so used to these experiences, my heart rate does not increase enough that I can reliably use it as a trigger without also waking myself out of exciting dreams that I'd rather not have prematurely terminated. I am fairly confident that a device such as this could help with breaking out of my paralysis at will and PERHAPS even be sold commercially to other sufferers of this condition, however niche the market. Giving me control over my sleep paralysis alone would be a highly satisfactory result with significant quality of life improvements and be worth the effort of building this. Waking up partners in bed with my head thrashing is less than ideal! As an avid software programmer, I do not think that the code involved would be terribly difficult. However, I have very little electrical knowledge and building this without existing plans would be tough and time consuming. It would be enough to have a pressure/flex voltage for each digit transmitted to a Raspberry Pi or via Bluetooth to a computer and the rest could be done through software. My questions are.. Does a commercial device exist that would be suitable for my purposes and not be terribly expensive? Perhaps a glove? Is a wrist strap with piezo sensors over each tendon that control the fingers a realistic possibility to achieve my goals? I do not need to know the position of the fingers or whether it is pushing against something. Just that movement is being attempted. Do existing plans exist to create a similar device? Thank you!

Discreet prosthetic arm: A Steampunk nonsense?

I love steampunk aesthetics, in both machines and clothing (I'm meaning girls) branches... but I have no artistic talent at all, so I can't develop such a beautiful machines or decorations. But sometimes steampunk fans care a lot about clothes and less about characters. They simply dress up, and waste the chance to assume a character, especially at conventions and meetings. There are lots of steampunk prosthetic-mechanical arms and hands, but I can't avoid think about "less are more". I mean, a mechanical arm in brass, cooper  and leather talks about your wit and ability, but a (simple) wired frame UNDER the jacket, apparent only by bumps and tensions under the sleeve and glove, and even better with mechanical wishpers and quiet pneumatic sounds when it moves (if you are so gifted), tells a story about the character of your character (if you understand me): for example, an inventor who has lost the use of an arm, may try to recover it and keep it hidden, like a shame. You can link it with an accident, a tragedy, a heroic act or a sacrifice. It would be part of my character, If I would had one. BUT steampunk is all about aesthetic, so... is it a nonsense? Or is it a second-level, deeper dive in the steampunk world?

Nintendo Power Glove Bluetooth controller for iPhone

I would like to strip down a Nintendo Power Glove and replace the guts with the innards of a current bluetooth accessory (if one exists) that has all of these features; answer call, hang up, play/pause, next/previous, volume up/down, and hopefully home button for voice control.

Game Gloves

I've been looking online recently for some sort of "glove" that you would wear for gaming, instead of having a keyboard. Didnt really find anything.. at least in my price range. So i am going to get the Makey Makey tomorrow from a trade with a friend, i figured this was my best bet. My idea for this glove would be that it have either foil on the tips or that sewing yarn that can be used as wire. There would be a thin Aluminum Sheet that you would tap with the appropriate finger. The aluminum sheet would act as the ground. My other idead would be instead of having the Aluminum Sheet have the tech yarn in the palm of your hand, but this would get uncomfortable after time. I want to make this so i could possibly in the future have two gloves one for each hand. Also, if i was to use the special yarn for electronics, i would have to wear to gloves since the yarn would weave in and out of the glove grounding to your finger. Most likely going to be working on this tomorrow or as soon as i can get some cheap gloves. I'll upload pictures then. any suggestions?
