LED Gloves

I was in a bar tonight and there were these guys with these weird LED gloves and were doing this little show where they wave their hands arounds and it looked really awesome. Seems pretty simple. They have 16 watch size batteries linked up to super bright LEDs. I kinda thought that was a good project to try instead of buying a pair for 100 dollars that are considered quality.  I really don't even know how to go about this.  They're called Light Show Rave Gloves. Here's a video of what they look like afterwords. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwNCnMNs6ww&feature;=player_embedded

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?

frog fingers/gloves?

Hi! i'm working on a frog costume among several animals for halloween, and the frog hands have me stuck. The plans are for a red eyed tree frog, so it needs 4 long digits, with slightly larger tips for the distal pads/suckers, and only a small amount of web between the digits. I don't think it will be a problem to settle for 5 fingers, I'm more concerned with length, shape, and the maybe the webbing. Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated. Thanks, David

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!

Trying to see how I can upgrade my  magnetic glove by increasing the strength of the electromagnetic field around it presently I can attract objects just 2-3 inches and by calculation if I increase the voltage to 18v from 9v but it would result into I^2R loss besides if I can successfully increase the strength then I would be talking of how to regulate the field using muscle sensors and an arduino board .

is it possible to make lightning gloves?

A friend of mine is offering me big bucks if i build him  a pair of lightning gloves which would shoot large sparks or lightning from one glove to the other. now because ive never built a voltage multiplier befor ei would like to know if theres any problems with my idea which is i get a  small 12v battery pack for racing car i connect that bttery (with a resistor ) to a transformer i then make a voltage multiplier with hv capasitors and diodes to multiply the voltage until a certain voltage is obtained. however i do not know how hoigh the voltage should be so that it is not lethal, but can jump at least one meter from one glove to the other. also as a safety precaution a large copper wire suit should be worn which me and my friend used on my uncles high voltage vandegraf generator whish shot 20m lighnting at us in our loighting suits ontop of our diving suits , and we never felt a thing. anyways, can you please tell e the specs of everything i will need to acomplish my mission?

How to operate the Iphone's touchscreen with gloves on.

Now that it's 20 degrees Fahrenheit outside, I normally wear some thick gloves to keep my hands warm. But whenever I need to use my Iphone, I need to slip them off to operate the touchscreen. I heard that the Iphone touchscreen recognizes the electrical resistance of the skin to measure where you're touching it, but I don't know if this is true. I was wondering if there was any method to perhaps simulate the resistance of my skin on the fingertips of my gloves using some substance. The problem is, I don't what to use. Also, if what I heard was wrong, I would appreciate any other suggestions on how to use the touchscreen without taking my gloves off.

USB heated Gloves mod Qs

I recently received a pair of USB powered heated gloves. Unfortunately they have a big bulky switch that hangs too closely to your hands and dangles around when you type. I'm looking to mod the gloves to have a less clunky switch, something more streamlined. The gloves have three setting, High (II), Off (O), and Low (I). There's a pic of what the inside looks like. I'm trying to figure out how the circuit works. I would assume it was just one setting is full power and the other has the resistor in it, but the resistor appears to be soldered to two leads on the switch. Does the wiring of it mean it skips the resistor when it's in the high position? Also what type of resistor is that (the big grey type) can it be substituted for a smaller one of equal value? It's not that important, I'm just curious, because I think I'm actually going to make the mod only have the High setting and probably without the switch since I could just unplug them instead of adding in a switch.I think the heating elements might be wired in series because the top pad doesn't get as hot at the bottom (or maybe they're just different temperature pads?).And I'd like to add a battery pack option. What would be the ideal (smallest) batttery setup I could use? (5 volts right?) Would a 9v battery overwork the thermal pads or just make them hotter?I was also thinking of changing the connecttion to a connector like this (LINK) a might be a little smaller, thoughts? Also what wires on the USB are pos and neg?

What is the best wire for generating heat? Answered

I am making an Instructable for some contests. The basic concept is below: -Put two peltier modules on each bloodline on the neck -Put small heat sinks that takes advantage of wind on the other sides of the peltier modules -Use the electricity generated by the peltier modules (While skiing in ~20F) on a heat-generating device located near the hands -Cover the parts that I can with some fabric and possibly build it into a neck warmer or face mask So my question here is: What kind of wire should I use to generate the heat on my hands? I'm looking for high-efficiency and fast to generate the heat Also, do you see any flaws in my concept that I should change? Lastly, the most important question I feel I should ask here is: Will the peltier modules generate enough electricity to make a significant difference on the heat of my hands? My hands get cold enough to hurt when I go back into room temperature if that helps.

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

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.
