Glove Mouse goes wireless

The Glove Mouse is the brainchild of Tony Hyun Kim and Nevada Sanchez at MIT, where it is now upgraded with wireless capability so that you won’t need to remain tethered to your machine any more. Each of these gloves come with an LED located on the back of the index finger, where it can be picked up by a low-res webcam in order for it to function as a cursor, while buttons located under the index and middle fingers can be activated by the thumb. For those who are more familiar with gaming, this is somewhat like a cross between the Wiimote and Peregrine. You won’t see this hit the mainstream market anytime soon though, so don’t keep your hopes up.
