Human Computer Interaction is a branch in which developer makes user friendly system. Now days, many persons suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and repetitive strain injuries due to continuous use of mouse. To avoid such serious problem of injuries and pains, a wearable wireless device is proposed in this paper. The proposed device uses Accelerometer and Flex sensors to sense the gestures with the help of ARM7 lpc2138 microcontroller. The sensors are mounted on a wearable hand glove. This device uses Zigbee modules at both user side and computer side and provides wireless communication. Due to simple gestures such as left click, right click, and drag operation rotation operation and pointing operation, the proposed device achieves user friendliness and effectively enhances user's interaction with computer.
