The Binary Glove, by game designer Pete Hawkes, is a fun interactive gaming wearable that teaches you a bit about bits. Each fingertip represents a bit value in a simple binary sequence 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 and is fitted with a pressure sensor that turns each bit on and off. The LCD displays the sum total of the sequence along with each value in the sequence. The glove has two modes: learning and play. In play mode, a random number from 0 to 31 is displayed and the user is timed to see how fast they can create the correct bit sequence. Now the next step would be to network two sets of gloves so you can challenge your friends.
