AnthroTronix originally set out to make a glove capable of translating sign language. But in order to fund that niche application, they turned to the U.S. military, who was interested in new ways to control robots in the field. As decreasing size and price of accelerometers has allowed the company to make a glove much lighter and more flexible than traditional wired gloves.
