Vortex Gloves Resources

Here are some helpful resources to assist with using your Vortex Gloves! 

Please note the above video does not show the pattern lists, please refer to the Blue menu in the guide below for updated info!

User Guide 

Power the glove on with a mechanical switch rather than waking it from sleep with a button press. No more dead batteries unless you actually used them!

A short press of the button will go to the next mode slot.

Default Modes List:

Holding the button will start to enter various menus, the longer you hold the deeper into the menu list you go. While holding, the fingers will fill with a color one by one to indicate a menu. Release to select a menu. 

This is the menu/color order:



White: Release while showing white to start the auto-randomizer, it will continuously randomize every few seconds until the button is pressed again to save the randomization to the current slot and exit the menu.


Color Select Menu

Orange: Color selection menu. Manually select colors in each slot, each finger represents and shows a single color from your set which you can edit individually rather than having to pick all of them in one go.


Pattern Select Menu
Blue: Pattern list menu. Each finger is colored to represent a unique list of patterns grouped together by certain qualities.


Global Brightness Menu

Yellow: Global brightness menu. Select one of 4 global brightness settings that affect all patterns on the glove at once without altering any saved colorsets.


Factory Reset

Red: Factory reset. Restores all modes to the settings listed in the "defaults" section of the code. These are the same settings you get out of the box!


Mode Sharing Menu

Teal: Mode Slot Sharing menu: Set the current mode slot to send its settings or set it to receive to save and overwrite the current slot with whatever is received.


Generally, a short press or "click" will navigate to the next option or slot, and a medium press or "confirm click" will either confirm and enter the next stage of the menu, or confirm and exit the current menu depending on where in the menus you are.
