Noah Zerkin sent us a vid to his current project. It’s a wireless inertial data glove rig, built with an Arduino- and Processing-based motion capture system for use in creative interaction, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), etc. It’s built entirely with parts from Sparkfun and RadioShack. He writes:
The thing that makes this special is how insanely inexpensive it was to build. The ultimate aim is to create a low-cost modular full-body interaction capture system for use in gaming, AR, and creative applications. The first commercial app I’m targeting for integration is Maya. After that, we’ll look at integration with a game engine. I’m not sure what a glove/arm kit will cost, but it should be under $250 (Perhaps well under… we’ll see… there are costs besides parts). Mass-production units would cost considerably less.
