I clicked on a link somewhere on that video and it took me to a website that sorta looks like it might be related to "science projects" or something of that sort. I don't read Flemish / Dutch as its a Belgian website. But there was what looked like "code" and a whole bunch of other techy stuff. There appeared to be version 2 of the gloves and even some diagram / pic of a backpack with some sensors for who knows what!

It is indeed for a research project. This is a fairly typical result of the "I have and answer and I'm looking for a question" process so often found in impractical technology incubation centers. Their heart was in the right place, but there are way better uses for wearable devices than this. I wonder what grade they got. They certainly didn't make it to the final round.
We came to climb, not to whine.
