GALACTICA SMART GLOVES (SG2)

Smart Garment for Space Gloves is a 3D knitted garment layer that provides active support for astronauts’ hands in a seamless manner.

This technology combines conductive silver yarn with embedded sensitivity sensors that allow capturing single-finger gestures, and wirelessly transfer them to control any robot. SG2 is bringing to the market an innovative hand function support system that uses thin, breathable, flexible, and smart textiles to provide a light, non-intrusive, safe, and small glove, to be used on space or on an everyday basis, in the labor-intensive industrial sectors.
