Side Project: Project Grip

Pointing

For the last few days, I’ve been working on a set of data gloves comfortable enough to wear all day, every day. I settled on a ring-like form factor and the exceptional polyimide Flexpoint sensors. It’s comfortable, not cumbersome, and damn cool looking.

I used this excuse to learn some OpenSCAD and made a parametric model! You can view the model on Thingiverse and easily customize it to fit your fingers.

These are just sensor enclosures for now. The next bit is making some driver electronics, based off the Teensy and peripherals I used in my hacked P5 Glove.
