The multipurpose glove is a hand-worn device that wirelessly controls the position of a platform and flashes a high power LED at a particular frequency in order to alias the motion of an oscillatory object. The position and motion of the platform is dictated by an accelerometer which is attached to the top of the glove, as shown in Fig. 1. The user can then tilt the hand forward, backward, left, or right, to cause the platform to move towards a desired location. The user can also adjust the flashing frequency of the high power LED that is attached to the bottom of the glove. This frequency adjustment can be done through hand motion and the accelerometer, or by changing the position of a potentiometer that is attached to the overall casing, as depicted by Fig. 1. Figure 1 also displays the battery armature, which is used to fix the battery and secure the system casing around the forearm of the user with VELCRO straps.
