Power Sleeve for Tetris

This project of wearable technology is a sleeve able to control the game Tetris, made in the Physical Computing course at Chalmers (Sweden). By moving your wrist left and right you can move the pieces, by closing the fist you make it rotate and by opening your arm you make it fall.


The sleeve is connected to an Arduino which interprets the signals and controls a USB gamepad to finaly control a Super NESS emulator installed on the computer.


The power sleeve is made only with conducting textiles and conducting threads.


The part that was the most difficult to master was the streaching sensor on the wrist because we had to recalibrate them quite often.
