Only in the student-culture of a tech campus could you come up with cheap, effective solutions, regardless of how funky it looks. Despite the plethora of wired data glove, the peeps at M.I.T. have done it again, more specifically, Graduate student Robert Wang (at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) ) has come up with a cheap, easily-implementable, and all-too-Partridge-family-meets-Ringling's look:  Color Gloves:

Okay, they're so funky looking, they are pretty. 

Camera-identified glove(s). "Why didn't I think of that?"
