Well, this has certainly been a long time in coming. I’ve been really busy with all kinds of work, most of which has not been related to the Keyglove project, which is why it’s been almost three weeks since my last update. However, I’ve been able to make enough progress here and there to post this video for you today.
Basically, this shows another proof-of-concept typing demonstration using the new glove construction with a full sensor array. All 34 sensors are attached to the glove: five sewn on the fingertips, one sewn on the lower thumb segment, three sewn on the palm. All of the rest are remote control rubberized keypad contacts which I cut from a cheap broken universal remote I got off of eBay.
Note that this video doesn’t demonstrate any mouse movement or accelerometer control yet. It is focusing only on typing with touch combinations. The mouse control is still being developed as a feature as well, but it is not part of this video.
The actual typing starts at around 5 minutes into the video. Enjoy, and merry Christmas!
