Do you have a video of you using the device?
Yes, it is on the website. Click on the main image.

What would be the benefit of such a device in the real world? Seems kind of an awkward gimmick.
People who have lost a hand could find immediate value. I also use it when i'm driving as I can feel the keys I'm pressing on and it's one-handed. It is awkward right now mainly due to the design and aesthetics. I'm pretty sure some people had the same doubts for the first keyboards. "You put your two hands awkwardly on a surface?!" We are born with typing gesture on Gauntlet, whilst typing on keyboard is a trained gesture. If you actually type on the glove it feels quite natural even at its current prototype state.

Unfortunately wearable computer enthusiasts made a smaller and more versatile version of this over 10 years ago...
I would like to think 10 years ago the technology wasn't quite there. With the introduction of smartphones and popularization of Bluetooth technology, and with the upcoming wave of head mounted displays (Google Glass), wearable computing will become more acceptable and mainstream.

Gees we have a lot of armchair critics on these forums these days. I know I can't build a glove like that and irrespective of if its been tried before I give a tip of the hat to anyone that is willing to step up and build something. Unfortunately I don't use facebook so I can't help you OP other than say all the best with the comp and hope you and the team keep it up.
I appreciate your sentiments! I have dreamed to make a device such as this when I first saw Minority Report as a kid, and I'm just glad and proud of my team for making this a reality.
