The days of air-punching invisible Daleks and making your own sound effects are over: a team from Carnegie Mellon’s Human-Computer Interaction course have built a glove that does it all for you. The Augmented Hyper-Reality Glove can identify upper-cuts and karate chops using flex and tilt sensors and play the accompanying sound effect using an Arduino-powered Adafruit wave shield. We can see some potential downsides — flirtatious finger-gun fusillades accompanied by the sound of cannon fire might just ruin your date. If you’re undaunted by such social faux pas, see the toy your inner-child always wanted in action after the break.
