Description

How can we touch a digital object in the real world? It isn't solid, but we can simulate the object in the air.

This instructables teaches how to build a pneumatic glove that simulate the contact of the hand with an object.

But how it's works?

1) An Intel RealSense camera captures the position of our hand in the space, it transfers the information to our computer that translates the coordinates of the real world into virtual space coordinates. 2) An Unity Framework program compares the coordinates of our hand with the coordinates of the digital object and send the result to an Intel Edison board. 3) The Edison board interpretates the result and starts or stops the pump. 4) The pump provides to inflate a blimp positioned under the finger.
