The Power glove is so awesome! But why should a classic piece of hardware be kept on a dusty shelf?!? I'm going to do my best like to give the power glove new life as a wireless gamepad. The goal is to connect it wirelessly to a computer in order to control robots with it.
In Part 2 you get to see a hardware guy struggle as I write the python code to make the buttons and flex sensors work with the synapse modules. The next step is to get the Teensy to grab the synapse serial code and translate it to gamepad actions! But first things first I need to finish wiring it up of course!
