Abstract

This paper presents a specific API’s implementation process, this API allows the interaction of the P5 glove with virtual reality environments implemented in the programming language Java and its tool Java 3D. Also, an example program is imple­mented using the API. Then, a CPU and physical memory consumption tests is performed with the example. Finally, the conclusions obtained are specified.
