Some students at my university have made a smart-glove that can control all newer DJI drones. I got to try this myself, and I have to say I am impressed. Using gestures instead of sticks makes the flight control way more intuitive. I believe this technology might be adapted by DJI in the future.
Watch the glove being used with a Mavic Pro here:

Ah not for me but good on them actually creating something. To me, it's more reinventing the wheel. Besides, that hand position https://bit.ly/2QKcyen

Will do. Innovation and drones is two exciting topics for me personally. Can't wait to see technological advances being implemented further

Maybe to the side with buttons in your palm. It's not even thanos like. Probably needs a lot of beta testing with different people. I would never use that myself

Well the beta-testing is ongoing. And I would try it before I wrote it off if I was you

It's the Nintendo Power Glove.  Too young for this reference? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Glove

It is differently a new concept in the drone world. It looks like it would work as long as the drone is in VLOS.
Being of the older generation whos hands might shake a little I can see the drone doing a dance into the ground.
On the other hand if the price was low enough I might give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

Great idea but with my arms i need to be able to hang the controller around my neck so no gloves for me i guess. I could never leave my arm/hand in that position for any length of time. Do you have to put the glove on your hand? In other words can i just hold the glove and not put it on? @Shervin

No that won't be possible, sorry. I believe there are sensors in each finger, so having to hold it instead of wearing it would be very difficult. But as I have said before, it doesn't really tire you out. In theory it sounds a bit tiring, but in my 20 minutes of flight that thought didn't even cross my mind. Unless you have some sort of illness/sickness I believe this glove is quite comfortable.

I cannot hold my hand in that position for longer than 2-3 minutes. With the RC and my phones i have to let go of the RC at times with a lanyard around my neck works best. You guys should make plenty of money without my sale lol Good luck and God Bless

Oh, sorry to hear that. A regular RC definitely suits you best then. Btw, I am not a part of this team, but I too wish them good luck

That's not true. Better get your facts straight before answering questions meant for others... You have no reason for your answer, in the video you can clearly see the camera view of the drone via the screen recording.

You can see the camera view through the app, which is pretty similar to DJI's own app   From 1:55 to 2:05 in the video, you can see the app interface. Although some settings are open, you still see the camera view in the background
