Arm-e Talk-e

A gauntlet that acts as a receiver and transmitter of IR signals. Allowing the user to send their hand gestures to another person who wears the same device. As this is IR they have to be within view of each other (or at least the gauntlets do.) The upper arm portion consists of motors that constrain five evenly spaced rings. These act as feedback for what the other's fingers are doing. Allowing for fast (with practice) silent local communication.
