lucidgloves- Firmware and 3D Print Files

This repo contains the arduino firmware as well as the STL files for Prototypes 3 through 4 of the LucidVR glove. This is a finger tracking glove that allows you to use your hands in VR. Follow along with Lucas_VRTech’s developments on his Tiktok page:

Open the firmware files located in the firmware/lucidgloves-firmware folder.
By default the firmware is configured for an arduino nano using serial.
To configure the firmware, change the defines in the lucidgloves-firmware.ino file.

Configuration instructions are here: Configuration Instructions.

Tested boards:

* Arduino Nano

Supported Communication Methods:

* USB Serial
* Bluetooth Serial (On ESP32 boards)
* BLE (Soon, not up yet)


STL files for 3D printing are located in the hardware folder.
Prototype 4 models are currently experimental

The assembly for each hand is as follows:

For Prototypes 3 and 3.1 –

  • Spool (5x)
  • Tensioner (5x)
  • Cover (5x)
  • Holder (5x)
  • GuideRing(Will need to be resized) OR GuideNode(3.1) (2+ per finger, 1+ for thumb)
  • EndCap (1x per finger, will need to be resized to fit)

For Prototype 4 –

  • HapticSpool (5x)
  • Tensioner_GreenPot (5x) OR Tensioner_WLPot (5x)
  • SpoolCover (5x)
  • RigidMount (2x) (One for each hand, make sure to flip for other hand)
  • WLPotSlideHolder OR WLPotElasticHolder OR GreenPotSlideHolder (5x)
  • Quest2_MountSlider OR Vive3.0_MountSlider (2x)
  • GuideRing (Proto 3) (Will need to be resized) OR GuideNode (Proto 3.1) (2+ per finger, 1+ for thumb)
  • EndCap (Proto 3) (1x per finger, will need to be resized to fit)

Guide for printing parts: Printing guide

Required parts for each hand: Parts Lists

  • Joysticks for locomotion
    • will be making a DIY treadmill eventually as well for those who would prefer that
  • Buttons (Most can be replaced with gestures) (One is required for autocalibration)

More information will be available on the LucidVR site very soon.

SteamVR Compatibility (OpenGloves)
