Just found this company called Nanopaint that makes piezoelectric ink. I am looking into ways that we could incorporate this into our design. With an array of piezoelectric rectangles connected by wiring we could measure the stretch of the fabric. we could also use this for a flexible and stretchable multitouch system. This means that the gloves could not only function as haptic gloves but also as inputs to each other. Super cool!! Trying to get in touch with them now to get ahold of some of the ink!!
