While in (near) future, I am targeting some real fancy stuff in my hme turf, manufacturing, like e.g. robot control, over the last few days I played around with just controlling my MacBook.
Leveraging Midi-Stroke I convert the Midi messages arriving at my MacBook from the T8 to trigger actions. Easist one of course was just flipping through presentations via sensor press. Next I routed knob information to switching between applications. Now working on controlling the ”laser pointer” in PowerPoint via gesture.
This is pretty basic stuff, but for those of us out there who’d love to see this great glove going somewhere, rest assured, the effect on your audience is pretty cool and gets them interested. Until I find the time to dive into manufacturing equipment control, I use this to show my customers the flexibility and add a narrative to explain I am technically also able to control other stuff.
In that regard one option for further business could be having other wristbands to translate the sensor information into other, non-midi messages.
I am also working on controlling my Sonos environment at home...and of course any Skype session I do when being in home office
