Imogen Heap's Electronic Gesture Gloves
Musician Imogen Heap demonstrates electronic gloves that she developed for interacting with her computer's music programs during live performances. The gloves, which she has now launched a Kickstarter to produce, have sensors placed over the knuckles so that Heap can gesture with arm, hand, and finger movements to cue up different sounds. The gloves have accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers for detecting orientation and hand postures. Heap has been working on the musical gloves with the University of Western England since 2011. Each single "Mi.Mu Glove" will cost £1200, via the Kickstarter, and you can read more about the project here.
