mrdon,

 

Thanks for all the great comments.  I have not thought to seekmore funding from an online source yet, but it is a good idea to consider.  I may pursue the project in the future once I can devote more time to it.

Thanks for the answer about the type of gloves: tight-fitting does make more sense.

Rob,

I'm really impressed with the Build Instructions for the Gloved Hand Controls Airplane's Flight project. As I read through the instructions, I was able to understand the layout requirements and assembly of the proto product. The software was well documented where I can easily follow the logic behind its control features and functions. The pictures were clear and documented perfectly. This Build Instruction will allow changes to be made by any Gadget Freak reader who wants to personalize the project for their intended needs. What a great project!

Ann,

From the look of the video, it seems an ordinary pair of women's glove will do the trick. I love this video because of the use of "off the shelf electronics" to create a really cool product! Design News Gadget Freak is quite inspiring! I have a couple of proto concepts I need to pump into the Gadget Freak pipeline. My five minutes of fame awaits me! LOL!!!

Charles,

I agree two hundred percent!. The products that are being developed in Makerspaces and University Labs today will be common devices of tomorrow. Their product has a lot of Gestural Controls potential applications for Human Machine interfacing.

Cadman-LT,

With any new handheld device the operating learning curve might be steep. With additional practice and being comfortable with the glove, you can probably do all sorts of aerial tricks using the wearable controller.

JPHartman,

Great project and video. Have you thought about seeking additional funding from Kickstarter to take the prototype to the next level? Also, the Maker community via Makezine.com would find this project extremely interesting to its readers. I see this product being used as a development kit for creating Gestural Control devices. Again, congratulations and great video!!!

warren@fourward.com,

This product is only limited by the developers imagination. Pressure sensors can easily be embedded with the glove for implementing such controls actions.

far911,

If this concept is presented at Makerspaces as well as a Kickstarter project, the answer is yes. The project has alot of Open Source  hardware and software elements that appeal to the Maker community. With additional Kickstarter funding, I can see this product being an educational tool for the development of gestural controls through Physical Computing and Wearable Electronics technologies.
