  1. Cool… just wanted to say that the site has really been moving lately and that you all are doing a really good job with very cool articles lately, keep up the good work!

  2. I wonder if you could use that novint falcon with a 3d modeling program. It’d could be just like using a tool to sculpt clay.

    On that note, how awesome would Trauma Center be on this thing? imagine feeling the scalpel slide through different types of flesh, smooth bone guiding the flat of your blade..

  3. You show a photo of a modified Mattel Nintendo Power Glove but you provided no information on it. I Googled on “powerglove haptic” and found the NewGlove project at http://www.geocities.com/mellott124/Newglove.htm (including the photo you used above). It looks interesting, but I miss the Nintendo controller on the forearm. It was removed as part of the hack.
    I have a Power Glove stored in one of my “treasure boxes”, waiting for the day I’ll hack it. About five years ago, I interfaced the Power Glove to the parallel port on a latop running linux. I used the old pglinux driver that is probably still out on the net somewhere. I even wrote a Tcl/Tk (Tool Command Language) script to talk to the driver and graphically display the finger flexes and hand movements. Ah, memories! Cool interface, but tiring for the arm and shoulder!
