“Dexmo can be used for controlling a robotic hand, also providing you with a better sense of presence by simulating a force feedback when an object is hit; or controlling a robotic arm; or something a little be more advanced, like controlling double robotic arms performing a remote bomb disposal task,” the Dexta Robotics team wrote.
The team also showed how the glove could be used to hack remote-controlled devices; used to control smart home devices, such as lighting; adapted for creating art and music using gesture controls; and even translating sign language.
Each Dexmo unit will come with some out-of-the-box software for users to experiment with; although at this stage, it will appeal more to developers and programmers, gamers will be able to benefit from the crowdfunding campaign also. For developers, raw data and an SDK will be available.
