Gest glove controls computers or phones with hand movements

When you are sitting in the office using your computer, a mouse and keyboard is the ideal interface for most of us. When you are out traveling and try to work from a tablet or smartphone, a mouse and keyboard aren’t ideal. This is where the Gest comes in; this device is a glove-like wearable that you place on your hand.

While you are wearing the Gest it allows you to work with your hands in an intuitive way. You can change between apps by twitching your finger or point at your screen to move the mouse around. When working in Photoshop, a twist of the plan will adjust sliders.

3D objects can be rotated by grabbing them and rotating your hand. It sounds like an interesting way to interface with your computer. Users can also program custom gestures and actions into the device. The glove has a section that slips over your palm and four finger pads that you place on your finger.

Gest is on Kickstarter seeking $100,000 and has raised over $63,000 so far with 29 days to go. You can get a Gest for $149 or more with shipping planned for November 2016.
