Tactical glove for military stealth communications using hand signals

Similar projects worth following
GLOVER is a compact glove that can detect hand, wrist and finger movements to make a 3D model of the hand. The data can be used for a variety of purposes, including military hand-sign communication and virtual world interaction.

  • PCBs arrived from OSHpark!

    The PCBs have arrived from OSHpark! Thanks to them for sponsoring our first prototypes. Excited to reflow these as soon as possible. I'm currently cleaning up the BOM manually and deciding on which solder paste and syringe to order. Hopefully I can send in the Digikey order tomorrow. Check out the PCBs:

    In some bad news, the PCB stencil I ordered from OSHstencil is gonna take a long indefinite time to arrive, because of the incredible inefficiency of USPS. Lesson learned: never use USPS for shipping! Seriously, the same thing happened to a university friend of mine a couple months ago too.

  • PCB Rev 0 sent to manufacture, and other good news

    The full Rev 0 PCB Design is complete and gerbers have been sent to the manufacturer! We are manufacturing 3 prototype boards from the amazing OSHpark. It's a 2-layer board with all the components on one side.

    And below is the 3D render for your viewing pleasure.
    If you wanna check out the design, the board is called "GLOVER REV 0" in the CircuitMaker community. Don't ask me why they make all the project names all-caps :P

    In other good news, we got accepted into an incubator at the University of Toronto! More details to come soon, after signing some documents.

  • Rev 0 PCB Schematics and basic layout complete!

    I should've created this Hackaday project page a long time ago...lots of progress has been made in the 1.5 months of working on this so far. The latest update is that the PCB schematics are complete and reviewed (thanks, Jimmy!) and the components have generally been placed in good spots on the PCB. Check out the 3D screenshot from our CircuitMaker project below!:

    Let's hope it's not a pain to route it on a 2-layer board. Fingers crossed!
