A controller for drum machines at your fingertips. A very expressive and natural sensor. Includes 6 TouchMicro-10 pressure sensors per glove - five on the fingertips and one on the palm. Each sensor responds to pressure from approx. 10 KPa (0.10 Kg/cm2, 1.5 PSI) to 981 KPa (10.0 Kg/cm2, 142 PSI) or approx. 0.2 N (20 g, 0.04 lb) to 98 N (10 Kg, 22 lb) that's evenly applied across its active area, a 10 mm (0.5 inch) diameter disk. Includes sheaths on the back of each finger to position BendMicro, BendMini or BendShort sensors. Includes a velcro pad on the back of the palm to position a GForce3D or an Orient3D sensor. Tune the TouchGlove using the online manual. Sold as a pair for right and left hands.

Application examples

  1. Use as touch controller, eg. for a synthesizer. Check out the Virtual Drum Set that was made with a left-hand and right-hand TouchGlove, or the Invisible Violin that was made with the left-hand TouchGlove v1.8 by Tim Soo.
  2. Combine with a BendShort, BendMini or BendMicro and create your own custom dataglove. Add some punch with a GForce3D or capture hand orientation with an Orient3D.
  3. For whole-body expression go bodysuit, capture all your joints' movements and express with all your extremities. Combine with BendMicro, BendMini and BendShort sensors from finger to toe. A GForce3D on each of your feet and hands captures kicks and punches. A Hot will keep you in check of your body temp. Use the TouchGlove on both hands to always be able to touch-control your performance, even while doing a handstand.
  4. A wireless Wi-microSystem is recommended in all cases to operate without tether.

Software support

  • Our EditorX software allows you to configure the digitizer to process and map the sensor data of multiple sensors simultaneously.
  • Our Link software allows you to receive the sensor data from the digitizer and use your computer to view, calibrate, record, process and map the sensor data of multiple sensors simultaneously.
  • Our SensorX software allows you to receive the sensor data from the digitizer and use your computer to view, calibrate, record, process and map the data of a single sensor.

Application notes
  1. Requires extremely careful handling. Do not rush when putting the glove on or off. Do not stretch fabric excessively. Gradually put on or take off glove by sliding each finger in turn a small distance in or out of the glove. Make sure to pull the fabric at the junction between two fingers and not at the tip of the fingers.
  2. Please read the TouchGlove manual.
  3. For calibration information, see the TouchMicro-5
  4. The sensors may show a value even when fingers or palm are not touching anything. This is caused by the fabric being stretched around and/or pushing on the sensor. To resolve this, use our software to adjust the range of the sensor.
