In March 2010 two MIT students, Tony Kim and Nevada Sanchez of Electrical Engineering made an innovative mouse for their project of Digital Electronics Course. They made special gloves which act as a wireless mouse and can be used to operate a computer for a particular distance.
Inspired by Tom Cruise movie Minority Report, these twogeniuses put together this device and are calling it the Glove Mouse. It pans, zooms an image in a similar manner as the iphone. A regular webcam is used which translates the movement of the hand into computer understandable syntax. The feed from the camera goes to a processor which uses a Field-programmable gate array better known as FPGA to the tech-savvy.
LED lights are positioned on top of both index fingers of the glove which help the camera to locate the position of the hands. The light from the glove LEDs is located and the positional information is transferred to the Computer, which shows them as two mini-hands representing your hands.
The glove has micro-controllers which sends signals to the receiver which enables the mouse to work wirelessly. The battery used for the gloves is a Li-ion battery which is used in a cell phone. All this was setup in 100 US Dollars.
