Here are two very "deffrent" ways to take input from a user (mostly used in musical applications):

The "BodySynth" (http://www.synthzone.com/bsynth.html) has a bunch of electrodes that you paste on to a person's skin, over their muscles. It converts the electrical impulses they use to flex their muscles, into digital input (MIDI, or some other protocol).

So you can take input from someone just flexing their arm muscle, etc.

Or there is Buchla's "Lightning" (http://www.buchla.com) which uses infrared LED emitters and sensors, to detect movements and translate them into digital signals.

So someone wears a special Lightning ring on a finger, or holds a special Lightning baton, and you can take input from their gestures in the air, across a stage from your receiver sensor.
