"I also use it when i'm driving"
Not really something you should be supporting to be honest.
If you text and drive, you’re 23 times more likely to have a car crash.
Good job for effort but I would never where a glove and who wants to carry a glove around. Is that the alphabet on the fingers? So now we have to stare at the alphabet on a glove on our hand instead of the screen?
Well congrats on trying to win. Reminds me of the NES Powerglove from the early 90s

I suggest you look up the FingerRing keyboard, there where several different working models out there at the time. but I think that was the main one used by many for a virtual keyboard that was in fact faster to use than a regular keyboard.
if this is to ever get popular..... sorry Apple already invented it.

First thing's first: Congratulations on getting the device to a workable stage. That's something well outside my level of expertise.
However, I'm not sure I can support this product. Looking at the video it looks like my typing speed would decrease (I've become quite used to typing on my smartphone now using the on-screen keyboard), and I think I would spend more time trying to find the letter on my hand than if I just used the on-screen keyboard. I can appreciate that someone with a handicap could benefit from this, but for your average user I don't think it would take off.
With that said, I genuinely wish you and your team all the best with this product.

Unlike the others here, I can clearly see that it is just a prototype, not a polished product. You have already done a lot of work with a working prototype and an attractive website, you are this ][ close into turning it into a Kickstarter Project where you can set a $10,000 goal and you will probably far exceed the target if it gains traction. I wouldn't bother with Best Buy. Their financial outlook is not that great so they could pull the plug on you at any time.

Let's face it, people text and drive even knowing the risk involved. I think if a technology that allows SAFE texting while driving, then that just might save lives. Right now I am able to type without looking due to the fact that I can literally *feel* what key I pressed.

And how do you read incoming texts?
