keyboard gloves

Description:

Pair of gloves that remotely connect to the computer. When wrists are held close together, the computer recognizes that user wishes to type. A keyboard becomes visible at the bottom of view. (A visual representation of the user’s hands are always visible unless given instructions to be removed or converted to an alternate pointing device.) The user then types as normal. The tips of the fingers inside the gloves give a textile sensation to simulate contact with the keys, as the key on the keyboard lights while touched. Holding down a key is possible.
To remove the keyboard view at the bottom of the screen, bring the palms of the hands together. This method prevents the keyboard from disappearing, prematurely. Therefor, once the keyboard is at the bottom of the viewing area, the user can access it quickly and allows the user to use hunt-n-peck type of entry.
The hands receive textile sensations for various purposes. Sharp point to indicate pain along with visual representation of “self” to identify where the user was hit. (“self” can be in any form. User is represented as human if playing a human in a game. “self” might be a space ship in combat.) There may be a textile sensation to represent grainy (like gravel), smooth, furry, soft, wet, cold, vibrations, explosion, centrifugal-force, etc.
