These Lycra gloves are equipped with motion sensors and are able to virtually perform actions in 3D on any computer. Despite being incredibly fashionable, the gloves are pretty amazing as they are able to mimic the wearer's actions all on a virtual screen.

I wouldn't mind wearing these chromatic motion sensors!

Implications - These motion sensor mittens are a good example of how the digital world is becoming more and more involved in the real world. This is the first step towards incorporating physical, sensory experiences in the virtual realm, with movements and actions caught and communicated on screen in real time. Soon, we won't need any controllers, just motion sensor gear.
