Raspberry Pi Glove

Just when you thought you had seen all of the cool things that 2014 and the Raspberry Pi community had to offer, in comes the Raspberry Pi Glove (a.k.a. Project New York) from Dan Aldred. The Raspberry Pi Glove is a social media glove that can take pictures and tweet them, act as a single-touch MP3 player, and provide train times.

The glove is still a work in progress, but Dan has published a build diary on his website [7] showing what has been done to date. Because it is based on the Raspberry Pi, it can be fairly easily programmed to perform a whole host of other functions, so if you come up with any awesome ideas, why not get in touch with Dan: He may well add it to a future version!
