Cadman-LT,

The use of hand controls using basic gestures is somewhat natural in terms of operating devices. Adding electronics to ordinary garments like gloves allow basic hand gestures to happen naturally and reduces the learning curve to operate the attached device under control. Just like you, I'm watching this technology closely to see the final outcome.

mrdon, I am sure you are right. I just kind of worry about the cost of the learning curve. I can't remember if it was crashable or not. Everyone seems to be into using your hands as controllers these days. It's a good thing I think. See where it leads.

notarboca,

Now, the use of these gloves to engage with repair robots for the ISS is an exceptional technologyy application. With haptics incorporated in the gloves, the astronauts will truly be immersed in the repair of the ISS. Not only can they see the damage part but feel the significance of its physical attributes as well during the repairs.

Rob,

I'm developing a bunch of gadgets for my Raspberry Pi (RPi) course on Udemy  and the two Arduino books under development  I would love to share with DN readers. Here's a link to my online course. I'm still evangelizing to my students the benefits of submitting their tech projects to Design News magazine.

Good point, Chuck. there is already a good population of weekend remote control plane and boat fanatics. I agree they would take to this gadget.

Debra, I think the practicality is in the way that many remote control devices prove their worth -- by directing action in places that are dangerous for humans. While this gadget itself doesn't necessarily fall into this role, the technology behind it does.

Imagine some future design of these gloves being used to control a repair robot outside the Internation Space Station, with no danger to astronauts.
