Atlas Puppetry Gloves?
Could these be do-it-yourself digital puppetry gloves?
Here's a tutorial for making yourself a pair of DIY Atlas gloves that can be used to control Google Earth using hand gestures. The way they work is that each glove has a small light and a web cam detects your hand gestures and interprets them as commands for Google Earth. It's a neat idea and of course I can't help but wonder how these could be used as some sort of digital puppetry interface.
