Glove Controlled Robotic Arm Using an Arduino

The idea of this glove controlled robotic hand came into dschurman's mind while in a hotel room on a vacation - Now that's a vacation being productive while relaxing :)


The gloves? whats inside the gloves you say? Its a set of flex sensors (the kind that changes resistance when being bent). The flex sensors are attached as one side of a voltage divider when the resistance changes the output of the voltage divider changes (what do you expect? haha) this viltage is taken in by the Arduino through the analog to digital converter pins (Ax Pins) and the arduino will drive the specific servo that controls a certain finger - straight forward and elegant way to do it :)
