System hardware: glove with accelerometer and flex sensor, microcontroller, and computer

The Apex Definer glove translates the movements of my hand into expressive visual output. On a screen behind me, custom software displays graphics that respond to the signals from the glove's sensors. I can choose to use the system for explicit control of and interaction with the graphics or to ignore the graphics and simply let them exist as a reflection of the forces underlying and motivating my motion.
