Embedded + Wearable “Gesture Radio Glove” Rachel Ciavarella (2014)

Gesture Radio test from Rachel Ciavarella on Vimeo.


A wearable FM radio that responds to specific gesture cues to adjust volume and seek stations. Haptic feedback in the form of vibration lets the user know when the station has been changed.

To adjust volume the index finger is bent. Contracting the finger reduces volume and extending the finger raises volume.

To seek up stations the user tilts their hand to the right. To seek down stations the hand is tilted downwards.

Audio is output through a standard 1/8th jack which can be plugged directly into headphones or speakers using an AUX cable.
