rocket glove

Reaction-based haptic feedback device

With a whoosh of flame and a cloud of smoke, the ignition of the rocket gloves of the virtual concert pianist signal the start of another performance! While an asbestos tuxedo protects the maestro from the flames, his breathing apparatus protects him from the toxic exhaust.

The rocket glove provides force feedback to a glove using reaction thrusters mounted on it. This allows full operation in free space without wires or cumbersome machinery. While originally conceived as a virtual piano keyboard, it has a panopoly of obvious and cool uses. Fuel and reaction mass could be piped in through the arms from a backpack supply for fully portable operation.
