Wearable haptics, compatible with Virtual Reality applications for remote interaction, are still heavily reliant on cumbersome wired systems, restricting user movement. We present an innovative, component-based, wireless embedded system on a glove with hand motion capture providing tactile feedback, operating without the need for a finger tracking device such as the Leap Motion. The user’s hand is tracked by an infrared filter pass camera which detects three infrared LEDs attached on the 3D printed base on the glove. The system is built using inexpensive parts making it ideal for prototyping and customization, therefore resulting to a scalable and upgradable system.
