DataGlove input devices provide natural input control of interaction in virtual, multimodal and telepresence environments as they can monitor the dexterity and flexibility characteristics of the human hand motion. In this paper a new miniature hand input device named the “Baby Glove” is presented. In contrast to the current Dataglove applications this miniature device was developed to study the sensorimotor control development in half to one year old infants and their ability to imitate. To meet the requirements of this application a device with a total mass of 5=40g including all the control hardware has been developed. An increased mobility wireless interface to the simulation computer is provided. This was realised with the employment of the Bluetooth radio technology.
