I would recommend first breaking in the glove. Wear it around the house, or on a jog, and do little finger exercises while you have it on so you can get a better feel for the strings that run down the length of your fingers (they feel like guitar strings) and familiarize yourself with the hot points. One recommendation I would have for the design of the glove would be to place cushioned bubbles over the hot points on the strings, sometimes you will hit the wrong area and having a better feel of where the connection is would be great.
The setup was easy and painless, and the ability to add hot-keys was easy too. I didn't even have to watch the tutorial to get it running correctly. Using the glove is also good for posture and kinetics, if you have problems with carpal this is a great option as not only does it free your wrist it exercises your fingers.
Once you have gone through the learning curve of re-memorizing what keys are linked to particular actions, gameplay is smooth. I am now able to do everything in LOTRO with the glove except loot the dead corpses, as soon as I figure that out I could play LOTRO with JUST THE GLOVE, no mouse or keyboard.
The glove is very sturdy. I cannot get the cover to stay on the pod part of the glove. It pops off.
right at this time I cannot use the glove for a long period of time because my hand falls asleep. The glove is not too tight it could be just me.
All in all the glove works as expected. It does take some time to get used to the touch points.
The bottom line is: The glove can't be used without operational software and without it the glove is useless. I sincerely regret my purchase.
I purchased the Peregrine to play controller based MMOs. The concept is sound and the glove behaves as you would think it would. For the most part I have been able to play with the controller and glove combo in both FFXIV and Star Trek Online. The glove allows me to leave the keyboard in the way I wanted but still be able to hit those number keys without the lag multiple controller key presses would give you. This was great, although some of the finger combos are a little difficult for my large hands to contort into.
One thing I can say is comfort for me was not as good as some people have indicated. First the thumb mesh is not comfortable at all, it pinches the end of your thumb. Maybe this will change over time but after several weeks of use it still isn't broken in the way I would like. Secondly the overall glove does let my hand breath enough not to totally sweat and short the glove out but I don't find it as breathable as some people have indicated. Personally I think the glove that they used could have been made much more comfortable. For something so expensive they should have a way to size more acurately thus allowing you to pick your actual glove size and get a better fit.
Another complaint that I have is typing. If you need to use this with any sort of tactile feedback device like a keyboard beware. The site suggests that with practice that you can hit your desired words per minute.Read more ›
The glove is nice but needs a small amount of padding added between the back of your hand and the glove or the solid back of the pod mount will cause odd sensations in your hand, probably due to blood circulation issues. The mounting for the pod is nice; comes off when you need it to but not when it don't. Although the glove is washable, you need to be careful about chemicals or catching it on something so you will need to take it off frequently, being very careful not to damage it by pulling on the wires.
Overall it's a nice product but the software is kind of primitive. It will only produce one keystroke at a time so it's not very useful in gaming: in gaming you usually want to jump in a direction. With this, you jump OR move in a direction -not both! In addition, I found that having more than 2 "buttons" active on a line causes ghosting where it will send the wrong keystroke (each finger has one "line" and 5 contact points). In addition, after a couple of weeks the software has started acting odd, leaving artifacts when dragged and having scripting errors on exit. This has not effected the operation however and the configuration is great!
Overall, this is a very nice idea, flawed by primitive (or under developed or what ever) software. If they ever improve this, I will be a heavy user. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be doing much anymore. Their last Facebook entry was back in November '14, they "restructured" back in July '14 and they seem to have disappeared since. The last communication that I was able to find from the company about THIS product was dated back in June '14. Oh well. It was a nice idea!
