Capskin hand motion tracking

The capskin glove

Our glove is fully soft, thin and stretch-sensing.

It interactively captures hand poses with high accuracy and without requiring an external optical setup. The glove contains as many as 52 sensors. 

To reconstruct the pose from the embedded capacitive sensors, we employ a deep network architecture that exploits the spatial layout of the sensor itself. 

A simple per-user calibration is performed on-the-fly using only the glove
