This is just a proof-of-concept currently and has a lot of work ahead but, I'm pretty happy with the initial results. Be sure to check out my website @ http://www.c0re1ndustries.com and my youtube channel @ http://www.youtube.com/user/reticulat1ngsplines for updates. And feel free to offer any thoughts or comments!

At first I thought this was a powerglove mod, but when I watched the video I quickly corrected myself. I think this has great potential as a gaming controller, but first you'll need to implement a mousewheel somehow. I would also like to see buttons for Mouse3, Mouse 4, and Mouse 5 on the middle finger, pinky, and thumb, respectively (Mouse2 moved to ring finger). The main issues I see with this are the glove becoming uncomfortable over time, and the need to keep your finders flat in order to click. Otherwise, this could vastly improve both speed and accuracy of the pointer by taking the heavy rat out of the equation. I'd love to try it.

Noted. Thx for the feedback. I've already got the new version in the works and planning mappable buttons, scroll wheel, migrating the laser assembly, moving most of the weight to the wrist to improve reaction time, etc. I have a lot of ideas for developing this into a gaming device and possibly an office productivity tool. Stay Tuned!

Hmm... How are you doing the scroll wheel? I would think the best way would be to use two MOMC buttons to emulate the scroll up and scroll down, but I suppose there are other ways. Perhaps an optical gesture sensor? :D

considering a capacitive sensor of some sort, still kinda feeling that out tho. I still can't believe the amount of feedback i've been getting all over the net.

I believe I have that same exact mouse (Logitech Wireless notebook mouse), and it has to be literally touching the table before it will get a response. I would say that an optical mouse would be better in that respect, as you would be able to take your hand off the table and still aim. In your videos it seems that your hand is not completely flat on the table. Care to explain?

I want the hand on the table, hovering your hand over a table would tire you out rather quickly. and my hand is indeed leaning to the side as in this first iteration I placed the laser assembly too far to the left. and of course i made the mistake of permanently attaching it there before testing lol. Currently working on a much improved version. and thx for checking it out!

Sorry, let me clarify my question. Your sensor is placed at the base of your index finger. In a normal resting position, that spot on my hand is about 2.5 cm off of the table, but the laser sensor (on my mouse) must be within about 5 mm to track properly. Therefore, it seems it would not work at all unless I flattened my hand, but in your video it seems to work fine. I see now that the sensor hangs down from your hand significantly, but I missed it at first.

I'm going to try to stop posting in this thread for the next couple of days. XD

This is a really nice concept. Do you just bend your finger in order to click? I didn't visit the external website so I apologize if there are details there, but I'm fairly interested about how it works. :)
