A Homebrew Data Glove with Haptic Feedback on a Budget – Paul Christian
While I was anxiously waiting for my DK1 to ship, all I could think about were ways to do things in VR. Game controllers are great, but I wanted hands. So having a bit of electronics knowledge and being a decent programmer, I figured might as well try to build a data glove.
This will be a brief presentation of what went into making it, some things learned in the process, applications, limitations and future plans; followed by a hands-on demo if time allows. I’ll also do an overview of features vs complexity and cost in commercial gloves/trackers.
Paul Christian is a full-stack JVM web developer/artist/musician, and recent transplant from Philadelphia. Interested in collaboration or employment relating to VR, physical computing, HCI R&D, edutainment, etc.
SmartThings is on the 3rd floor above The Bulldog NE. Go through the glass door and up 3 flights of stairs. Please plan for traffic and parking so you can arrive before the door locks at 7, or we’ll be running up and down those stairs a whole lot. There is street and lot parking all around the building. The nearest ramp is a block away by Ginger Hop.
