Glove mouse

[thetanktheory] sent us his glove mouse modification.  He has gutted his mouse and mounted the parts on a glove. This is interesting, as he doesn’t have to place his hand on the mouse any more, he just plops it down on any surface and starts mousing.  He claims that it is helping his twitch reactions in gaming as somehow it requires less force, but we still see the circuit and batteries mounted on the back of his hand, so we’re not sure how it is helping. Maybe if he moved the laser to his finger tips, he’d be more accurate.

    I want a laser on my fingertips…..

    That’s the perfect solution to mousehand!

  3. Marc says:

    You could set the batteries appart and provide the electrisity by a small copper cable from the glove to the batterypack somewhere else on the table

    Or you could just use a smaller mouse :) In all honesty mice are horrible interfaces keeping your hands and wrists are painful angles.

  5. James says:

    Did he just say “the power’s in your hand”? Superhero talk, I like it!

  6. Nick says:

    “The power’s in your hand” Is a reference to the power glove

    Would like to see him use the keyboard while using this.

    I made something similar, but with ergonomics in mind, and I wanted to keep my fingers free for programming. I don’t use it that much though. I should have started with a smaller mouse. http://www.timwylie.com/mouse.html

    for more videos (and one of me using the keyboard as requested) LOL you can hear my best friend in the background saying “the power is in your hand” :) I had originally considered using an old power glove, but this felt more comfortable. Next version to be up soon!

  10. btw, anyone in the Denton, Tx area who is interested in helping create a HackerSpace should check out my very rudimentary website @ http://www.c0re1ndustries.com
    I’m hoping to find a location soon.

    A few years ago those were $20 each. And they’re very nice and you can still type with them on. My only problem with it was the sensor bar was too big.

  13. To address the original posts comment about the weight of the device and it’s responsiveness, the weight is better supported on the top of the hand as opposed to having to move the object with the force of your fingers. Instead the bulk of the device is moved by your natural hand gestures. And ultimately I intend to build this so that the battery and board no longer have to be moved @ all. And I will be taking into account the great idea about the fingertip sensors.

    Not very good for browsing internet porn. They would have to make them in a left handed vers.

  15. LOL yes indeed, I’d imagine that would be quite painful. I vow to fix this issue as well. :)

    I like the production model better.

  17. well sure the concept art looks pretty but @ least mine physically exists.

  18. noonevac says:

    pretty cool except for the cancer he will get from attaching a laser to his palm.

  19. maybe i’ll get a tumor shaped like bill paxton!

  20. the_tom777 says:

    the biggest problem with this would be typing

  21. indeed, it is simple enough to type with right now but truthfully not very comfortable to do so. I’m working on an improved version and experimenting with different gloves made from thinner, lighter materials. I’ll be posting my build log pretty soon.

  22. Check out the pic of the new version. I’m just starting out with it but I hope to address all of the problems of the previous version.
