Unique Light Glove wins CES 2004 Design Award
 
 

The Light Glove is in the development since quite a while, but it now start to gain recognition. The Light Glove was awarded a CES 2004 Design Award in the Accessibility Category.

The Lightglove attaches like a large watch underneath one or both wrists and senses finger position and hand motion to generate typing and pointing input for virtually ANY electronic device. Wireless operation offers cordless freedom. Each Lightglove adjusts for your hand size and shape using the accompanying software to create the perfect fit just for you. Yes, it fits like a glove made of light without anything obstructing your hand.
A light beam illuminates a column for each finger, and a reflection is detected when a finger is lowered into the beam to "press a key". Software decodes the reflected light and highlights the activated key cell on your system video monitor.

the Light Glove inventor is currently looking to license the technology to manufacturing companies.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
