Mechdyne Pinch Glove

A simple and affordable system to incorporate hand gestures within virtual environments.

Pinch® is a remarkable, intuitive system for interacting with your virtual environment.

Pinch gloves make it possible to use a representation of hand interaction to productively work within a three-dimensional (3D) computer simulation.

Sensors in each fingertip detect contact between two or more fingers. Hand gestures can be programmed for a wide range of control and interactive functions. The gestures are not dependent on individual hand geometry. The gloves never require calibration.

The Pinch system includes:

  • A pair of gloves
  • Interface electronics
  • A user's guide
  • Tracker mounts

The RS-232 interface allows the Pinch to be used with virtually any workstation or personal computer. No complicated gesture recognition algorithms are required, so it is easy to integrate Pinch into your application.
