The Past is Another Country

In 2018, I designed and built a set of data-gloves with my collaborator, Cloud Unknowing. Our first prototype was built using flexible sensors that I manufactured from an Instructables tutorial. They were relatively robust and, though the masking tape sealing filled me with apprehension, they worked. Of course, data-gloves are nothing new. There is the Nintendo PowerGlove, the Mi.Mu and other commercially available gloves, ‘The Hands’ by Michel Waisvitz, Laetitia Sonami’s ‘Lady Glove’, and Elena Jessop’s ‘VAMP’.
