Kickstarter: Tornado MIDI Gloves

YouTuber HalutioN was playing with some MIDI gloves in his latest video, and I thought he must have sold a kidney to rent Imogen Heap's mi.mu gloves. Instead I find that Tornado Gloves are a comparatively affordable alternative.

While Imogen Heap's failed Kickstarter sought to sell the gloves for $2,000 with a campaign goal of $200,000, these guys are much more modest. You can back them for $350 to reserve a single glove, or $500 for a pair. They're only after $5,000 in total funding and they managed to meet that goal!

The demo video for this shows the Tornado Gloves being used for a lot more than just music making. They also intend for the gloves to be useful in gaming and 3D modeling. I would love to try these out in VR!

And on that note, I'm going to introduce you to Powerglove, named after the relevant Nintendo controller.

Ha! Thanks for that. They have some great video production and costumes! Like Gwar, but with game music.

It's 2018. Do we really need tech equipment sliced from the hides of long-suffering, now dead, animals?
