The purpose of the gloves is to be able to trigger different animal styles(modes) the user is imitating and be able to sonify Shaolin Katas. One application is inteded for astro-sonification in which style will be able to throw virtual projectiles that will move audially in space with physical properties such as inertia and resistence with a homogeneous or in homogeneous ether.
