Man controls drone with custom Power Glove




The American Nolan Moore has a Power Glove been adjusted from 1989, he is able to have control with a drone. He demonstrated his project at the Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo, California.

On his extensive blog Moore looks at the process that underlies the genesis of his project. The goal of Moore was adjusting a Power Glove for Nintendo, which released the company late 80s without much success. He took the decision to replace all of the components to the inside of the glove by its own hardware, including a Teensy LC-plate in combination with the sensors of a Pololu AltIMU-10 v4.

His PCBs Moore first designed using Eagle, but he later moved to kicad in the process. The connectivity of the Power Glove was greatly expanded, with a esp8266-WiFi module, Bluetooth, RC controller and an infrared transmitter. That Moore was eventually able to control a Parrot AR Drone. By flat holding his hand Moore hover the drone in place and making a fist and turning his hand he could influence the pitch and roll. He can let the drone fly up and down by pointing with his finger in the corresponding direction.

For the final glove, use was made of a model of Famicom, because this is still intact were completely in mint condition wrong, and also the bending sensors.
