    Sounds interesting, but I am already foreseeing far too many limitations to make this in any way more immersive than the existing buzzing hand controllers.
    A step forward perhaps, but only a little one... and then barely more than a shuffle.

    The future would be with the gloves that could "stiffen" at desirable positions. You could "hold" any shape of object without delay.

    Next step would be only the direct input into nervous system.
