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
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
