My hands were cold, and those thin one-size-fits-all gloves that enable screen touches arent warm enough. I needed something warmer will still being able to interact with my phone.

What it does

The smart mitten registers gestures and transmits them to your phone.

How I built it

I used an accelerometer and gyroscope to detect gestures and a BLE chip to connect to my phone.

Challenges I ran into

Calibrating gestures

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

It works really well. We calibrated the hardware just right so it could register gestures properly so it doesnt accidentally perform a gesture.

What I learned
