Glove Prototype TP1

Whilst I have been away the team have decided to rationalize the design of the glove via the removal of the accelerometer and buttons.

This has greatly reduced the both complexity of the glove and its weight etc, however the knock on effect from this is that I will have to re address the current implementation of the tracking lib as it relied heavily on the use of accelerometer data for point filtering etc.

Above are a few images of the new TP1 (Team Prototype One) glove setup.

For those who have seen the glove before, I have rationalized the Velcro loops to reflect the previous iterations of the glove. This acts further enhances the pinching capability.

Primary concerns at this point are the performance of the new systems power source and its overall efficiency.
