AcceleGlove – a programmable glove wired with sensors for capturing a user’s motions and allowing the user to interact with computers beyond the keyboard and mouse. The first commercial version of the AcceleGlove has been released by AnthroTronix.
The AcceleGlove is able to record hand and fingers movements, and it costs only $499 for a pair, a price that is much less than what other high-tech gloves are priced at. (such as 5DT’s Data Glove, mainly used in virtual reality costs $1,000 t0 $5,000).

The AcceleGlove was initially designed for the robotic control in the U.S. Department of Defense, but now it’s been extended for the use in video games, sports training or physical rehab.
