Using Powerglove as MIDI controller?

I modified a Powerglove to use it on PC via parallel port; using C++ I programmed it for translating the detected spatial coordinates into MIDI messages. Now I'm gonna optimize the software in order to play synth with my band Simmetry.

As you can see from the footages, my software suffers latency. Maybe it's due to the low-level MIDI programming, instead using DirectX, and the error correction routines which waste several milliseconds.
