In an effort to avoid unnecessarily reinventing the wheel, are there any projects out there which use hall sensors & magnetic strip attached to a glove to communicate with the arduino?
Tried a google search for various terms, but sadly the search function on here is sadly offline.
- How it works:
I'm planning to use 4 hall sensors per hand, with a magnetic strip attached to the palm.
The right hand are the 'option groups'
The left hand sets the value for that group. To switch all leds to strobe for example, you hold finger 3 of the right hand against your palm (R3), then hold finger 3 (L3) of your left palm. To quickly restore to default, hold R3 then all left fingers (L*).
R1 = Colour control
L1/L2/L3/L4/L* = Red, green, blue, white, all-fingers = default colour mixes.
R2 = Speed/fade control
L1/L2/L3 = slow, medium, fast
R3 = Mode
L1/L2/L3/L4/L* = torch, multi-fade, strobe, flash, reset to default
R4 = reserved
I'd appreciate any links or hints to existing projects and stuff. If not, time to get soldering and coding!
