There is a new project known as G.A.U.N.T.L.E.T. (Generally Accessible Universal Nomadic Tactile Low-power Electronic Typist) which is a fancy name for a DIY Wireless Typing Glove. Developed by a pair of former design students, this DIY glove is right now in its beta stages, and will basically enable anyone to type on any smartphone or computer with but a single hand, which makes us wonder at the possibilities of those who have only the use of just one hand to be able to use the computer in a more deft manner than ever before. Of course, able-bodied folk might be able to find a different use for their other hand while they are at it.

The DIY Wireless Typing Glove’s creator, Jiake Liu, is the co-founder of Kabob.it, a menu service for eateries. This glove is an experiment that he worked on back at college, where it had gone through a fair number of versions already. Electrically conductive embroidered letters are utilized to send signals over a Bluetooth connection, and there is the possibility that this project will see an improvement over time.
