<hardware, virtual reality> An input device for virtual reality in the
form of a glove which measures the movements of the wearer's fingers and
transmits them to the computer. Sophisticated data gloves also measure movement
of the wrist and elbow. A data glove may also contain control buttons or act as
an output device, e.g. vibrating under control of the computer. The user usually
sees a virtual image of the data glove and can point or grip and push objects.
Examples are Fifth Dimension Technologies (5DT)'s 5th Glove, and Virtual
Technologies' CyberGlove. A cheaper alternative is InWorld VR's CyberWand.
