I wanted to make a glove which allowed you to read in bed without having to use the effort to hold up a book or a computer, allowing you to fall asleep while reading. Theoretically, you could connect your computer to a projector and lay in bed with your book projected onto the ceiling, using the glove to turn the pages.
materials: keyboard with usb connection, gloves, wires, aluminium foil, soldering iron and tin
After hours of testing with a wire which key was which with the switchboard, I began by soldering the keys for space bar
Burnt through the copper traces, almost had to start over. However, luckily I was just able to change my key from SPACE to (–>) and it serves the same function in iBooks.
bringing the wire through the gloves
used aluminium foil to create conductive fingers. You tap your fingers together to turn the pages.
