Data glove and head tracking device that uses motion capturing system
Developed by a team of master program Media Direction students at the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt, Germany this data glove and head tracking device is capable of detecting gestures and track objects using the motion capturing system Vicon. Not only this, the data glove has precise head tracking in virtual environment using 3D glasses for enhanced capabilities. The glove has been build using lilypad and bending sensors for gauging finger movements and for sending the data Bluetooth connectivity is available. To calibrate this whole thing a push button and LED is added so that the user can go back to old settings.
The team comprises of young energetic students including Johannes Freund, Julita Kederiene, Ruwen Klingler and Burkhart Stempel. Although the data glove is still in its prototype stage but we could soon see the enhanced version as the developments go inside its development stage.
