One-in-one-out: Waypoint

The waypoint is a navigational glove that can be used to point to a location. It currently points north but will eventually always point to a certain location. It’s not currently presented as a glove, but the compass will be at the base of the pointer finger and the lights will be on the finger itself. In the above video, more lights turn on as the compass points closer to north. Eventually, the location will be input-able and a GPS will be used to navigate to the location in addition to the compass. We wanted to do this as it is a statement about the communicative power of the hand and the interest we have in glove based wearables.
