Description

This project involves the creation of an input device that the user shall wear on their right hand and arm. Said device will measure the bend of the digits as well as the motion of the hand. It will then transmit a signal which corresponds to a known input wirelessly using Bluetooth technology. This signal shall be received by another Bluetooth device which shall interpret it accordingly. Such uses of this technology could include, but are not limited to: Computer input (e.g. mouse, keyboard, game controller), Human assistance (e.g. Interpretation of sign language, control of a wheelchair), or control of a Bluetooth controlled vehicle (i.e. an RC Car).
