Open source project from Henning Lohse and Jan-Lukas Tirpitz is an Arduino powered glove that can be used to compose EDM with hand gestures - video embedded below:
During this internship, a wireless glove was constructed using various sensors converts hand movements of the user in control signals. These can then be sent via Bluetooth to a computer there to use various software.
The main focus here was initially on so-called “digital audio workstation” programs, which are used by DJs and producers to record music, apply effects to them or to emulate artificial instruments such as synthesizers. The interaction of such software with the glove thus makes it possible to use the latter as an effects unit and even as an independent musical instrument. The DJ-glove is born …
By appropriate modification of the software, the glove can, however, also be used as a general input device for any program.
