Interactive Handshake

I used a button to control a red LED. In this case I inserted the arduino and the board inside a black glove, which means that both are attached to the hand using an elastic band. Each time a person shakes hand with the one holding the glove, it will light on the glove. To improve this device instead of inserting the bradboard and the arduino inside the handface I would separate them and put the bradboard in the back of the hand.

int ledPin = 13; // choose the pin for the LED
int inPin = 2;   // choose the input pin (for a pushbutton)
int val = 0;     // variable for reading the pin status

void setup() {
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);  // declare LED as output
  pinMode(inPin, INPUT);    // declare pushbutton as input

void loop(){
  delay(500); //delays light
  val = digitalRead(inPin);  // read input value
  if (val == HIGH) {         // check if the input is HIGH (button released)
    digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);  // turn LED OFF
  } else {
    digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);  // turn LED ON
