Atlas Gloves

16 years and 1 week ago · listen

Atlas Gloves is a DIY (Do It Yourself) physical interface for controlling 3D mapping applications like Google Earth. With a pair of illuminating gloves, the user is able to fly above the world and zoom in and out, tilt, and rotate by doing various gestures. The technical implementation includes a small camera attached to a computer.

The open source Atlas Gloves application can be downloaded at the website and operated from home using a webcam and two self-made illuminating gloves. Check out how to build your own illuminating gloves and download the open source application.
