Preview of a new project. I have mini vibrating disk motors embedded in the fabric of the gloves under the first bone of each finger. I cut a slit near the end of the finger, then poked a hole a little further down through which to feed the wires, but not big enough for the whole motor, thereby making a small pocket.

The wires feed between the fingers to the back of the glove, where they will be wired up to a small Arduino with motion sensing and Bluetooth connectivity. The Arduino will receive signals from a PC to activate the motors, and will send the motion values back to the PC.

With all this, I'm going to make a haptic glove, a device that will let you "feel" objects in virtual reality.
