You can recalibrate your gloves from the Users panel or, if you want to recalibrate individual gloves, from the Devices panel.

Calibrating the IMU's

Each finger contains three layers of material connected to the electronics. The top layer contains the IMU sensors which register position and orientation on a 9 degrees of freedom (DOF) grid. The second layer acts as a a support layer to keep all of the sensors aligned. The third layer consists of flexible bend sensors which register the amount of bending the first two digits of each finger does.

  1. Move both hands in a single repetitive motion, like a swimming motion or in a figure 8. Do this for a couple of seconds.

  1. Finish by holding both hands still. Putting them on a table can help.
