This first ohmGlove prototype is an attempt to make a wearable version of the ohmHook. It allows the wearer to pinch a material between their fingers to listen to it’s electrical resistance as well as how it behaves under pressure. A pull-up resistor of the same material is sandwiched between little finger and palm. The circuit uses the VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) module from Bastl Instruments One-Chip-Modules to translate the resistance into pitch.
This first prototype was produced at PIFcamp 2016.
