The Supercon really loved the data glove - enough to convince me to put it online.

The project looks pretty good, but inside, it's pandemonium. Below the clean-looking case (I'm pretty proud of that, it came out great) the Somatic prototype is a mess of perfboard and sloppily-soldered dev boards. The code does basically nothing, and the training utility does even less.

But, the hardware works, and I have my tasks ahead of me. From easy to hard:

Anyways, stay tuned, I think I'm pretty close to finishing the training utility... as soon as I can figure out how to render the quaternions and gesture path...
