Wireless MIDI Glove

A Bluetooth-enabled glove that encodes finger movement into MIDI signals and a Python GUI that creates a virtual MIDI port for synthesizers.

I chose this project to be my final year project as I was intrested in wearable technology, MIDI synthesizing and wireless communications. The glove uses three of the fingers as signal bits to select notes being played while the remaining fingers are used to change the selection to note being played in the base octave, an octave higher or a chord in the key of C. The glove uses pressure sensors in the fingertips to create the notes and volumes, a flex sensor in the wrist to control pitch bend and this is transmitted through the Bluetooth module on the glove to the computer.”
