Forget the touch screen with these Arduino touch gloves

touch gloves with Arduino Nano

The arrival of Microsoft Kinect was a true revolution. From that moment on, not only could any gadget be manipulated with gestures, but also people began to dream and think about having gesture controls. This opened a great door and the creation of numerous projects, projects like these tactile gloves.

A user named B. Aswinth Raj has converted a disposable gloves into tactile gloves and all thanks to the power of Arduino and specifically of its Arduino Nano board.

These touch gloves only need Arduino Nano and disposable gloves

The construction of these gloves does not involve great expense since, together with the disposable gloves, touch sensors have been used, specifically 4 sensors for each hand, magnets are used on the thumbs and everything. is connected to an Arduino Nano board. As you can see, the cost of this project is not very high.

The hardest part of it all is the program that uses these tactile gloves. A software that we can use and get thanks to the total publication of the project by B. Aswinth Raj. This allows us to recreate this project anywhere and even customize it if we have enough knowledge.

At the moment the project manages to create straight lines and allows the user to paint or draw with their fingers without touching the screen, something that although it is not very functional, it is a solid step towards the construction of tactile gloves or gloves that can be used in Virtual Reality environments and without being a great nuisance.

Personally I think this project is interesting, very interesting because the use of disposable gloves makes the user's touch not compromised and in addition to writing on the screen, can also perform real actions Do not you think?
