Cynergy Labs Project Maestro – Wiimote Fingertip Control

at 11:22 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Computer Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Crazy Hacks, Game Hacks, Insane Equipment

Cynergy Labs is working on some cool technology! Using the concepts that Johnny Chung Lee introduced as a building block. This system uses the Wiimote as a camera looking at the users fingers to determine what the user wants to do. I can see this technology being built into laptops and other computer system in the near future to be used at an additional input device.

“Maestro brings together Microsoft WPF, third party community libraries and custom built IR gloves to demonstrate next generation human to computer interfaces.”

    This reminds me of the virtual internet goggles & gloves that Keanu Reeves uses in the movie Johnny Mnemonic.

    Hi Nathan,

    Cool looking site you have there. 🙂

    Wow, that was incredibly painful to watch. It’s a neat technology, but that’s a horrible implementation. 🙁 It’s not so much gesture control as it is an exercise in frustration.. I think I’d be ready to break something if I had to use that for any length of time.

    I did this exactly one day after seeing johnny’s thing about his reflective fingertip control with an IR illuminator. It cost me about $25 in parts from radio shack, and a pair of neoprene scuba gloves (channels in the neoprene act like wiring conduits for concealed wiring). I didn’t add anything like the ‘3-finger-grab’ but I had variable brightnesses that I developed off of Johnny’s work, letting me ‘right-click’ with a single hand, or use two hands like this guy. Way to be original homie, tip one back for everyone else’s work you used to get where you are. Also, perhaps you could use it for a potentially better concept that’s highly dynamic, like 3-d modeling or animation, or even CAD/CAM drafting.
