Using the P5 for Physical Control
- These guys are making a real full sized mech, i'm not joking. They are considering using dual P5 gloves as part of the control system
- Part of their future plans include:
- using the P5 with Juice (the Juice program is actually part of the MechaPS project).
- left handed version
- dual units at the same time
- absolute and relative modes
- Unix/Linux and Win32 development

DC motor controller / The Manta
(by Brian Ballsun-Stanton)
- Brian Ballsun-Stanton adapted the ShowGlove Java class to send instructions to a Phidget Servo Controller. The Servo Controller then sent its own instructions to a set of four Victor Servo to DC motor controllers, which powered four motors.
- The "Manta" is a cable array robot which uses the Power Glove to control the length of four lines. Adjusting the length of each line causes a change in position for the Manta.
- The "Manta" wire model can move in 3 dimensions controlled via P5 finger flexing.
- Code is available on request to Brian.
