Word:

data glove

(hardware, virtual reality)data glove - An input device for virtual reality in the form of a glove which measures the movements of the wearer's fingers and transmits them to the computer. Sophisticated data gloves also measure movement of the wrist and elbow. A data glove may also contain control buttons or act as an output device, e.g. vibrating under control of the computer. The user usually sees a virtual image of the data glove and can point or grip and push objects.

Examples are Fifth Dimension Technologies (5DT)'s 5th Glove, and Virtual Technologies' CyberGlove. A cheaper alternative is InWorld VR's CyberWand.
