AGE (PowerGlove designers/manufacturers) and VPL (DataGlove designers and
manufacturers) settled their lawsuit as much as 6 months ago, with the
upshot being that VPL will "soon" start selling a PC-attachable low-resolution
HackerGlove for roughly $200. Maybe more, I don't know. Anyway, the bottom line
is that taking apart your PowerGlove so that you can attach it to your PC
may be more trouble than it's worth, since you will "soon" be able to buy
a useful version of the PowerGlove for not too much more than you paid for
Of course, how soon is "soon", that is the question.
