Default Quinpy: VR Glove peripheral

Hey!

I was hoping to get people's opinions on my Virtual reality Glove (and who better then Computer guru's?)

goal: make an Open Source Haptic feedback glove anyone can print off & build with a 3d printer (or cnc mill) for free (not including material costs) & gather a modding community that tweaks and modifies it, improving the glove's functionality and whatnot.


My first prototype:



- This was a prototype made from lego, with a variable resistor for data feedback, and a stepper motor
from an old floppy drive for the haptic feedback (the wiring is not shown in this picture, you can look at
my setup on my first & second youtube updates : ( Haptic Feedback Glove: Prototype 1 - YouTube

Second Update:



This is the version I am currently working on.
the picture is just a mock up with no electronics attached (heck, most of the finger joints aren't even in place yet)
I want to make this a bit closer to how I plan to have the final version.
as in: the haptic feedback motors can be replaced with different feedback devices. and same goes with the the type of encoders that can be attached.

note* there will also be a piece attaching the glove to the wrist (not shown)

What are your thoughts on this?
(oh, and Quinpy is the projects name)

I'm trying to do updates every Monday and Thursday. (here, youtube, and EevBlog)
