Touchpads? Meh. Touchscreens? Bleh. Powergloves? Oh hell yes. Unfortunately / Obviously no one is in the business of making powerglove pointer devices for your computer right now, but don't let that stop you from hacking together your own, you wonderful psycho.
The folks at HouseholdHacker explain the process, which is involved, but far from impossible. And whether or not you believe that the result is really that much better than just putting your hand on a mouse, you can't deny that it's cooler. OK, weirder. But if you've ever wanted a powerglove that was actually good for anything, this looks like your best chance. [HouseholdHacker]
