Energy Gauntlet is a language agnostic platform for controlling the universe. Sensors in the Energy Gauntlet are sent through the EG API to be used by you to control anything you can imagine.

This project is solving the SpaceGloVe: Spacecraft Gesture and Voice Commanding challenge.


We have used our hands as the primary method of interacting with the world since the dawn of man. Why then do we work through middlemen such as keyboards, mice, and controllers to interact with our devices? Energy Gauntlet is a language agnostic platform for interacting with devices using only a glove.

Sensors in the Energy Gauntlet send data through the EG API which can be accessed via WebSocket or HTTP. Any application can then consume this data to be controlled by the Energy Gauntlet.

The Energy Gauntlet project page has examples in several languages controlling a diverse group of systems
