uMotio is an Arduino compatible device with built in gesture control
We received from our Submit channel an update from an interesting project calle uMotio
“It’s basically an arduino compatible device with gesture control built in. It picks up x,y and z motion and also has built in gestures such as swiping left/right/up/down and even airwheel (clockwise and anti-clockwise).
The board contains a gesture control ic along with an atmega32u4 (used in the arduino leonardo). It has an arduino compatible bootloader on it and we also created an arduino library for it to make it easy to use.
In its current state (it’s still a prototype), It will enumerate as a joystick/keyboard and serial port on a pc (all standard hid drivers so works just as well under windows/linux).
If you don’t want to create your own firmware (arduino) for it, then you can still develop something on the pc side. The serial port will stream x,y,z, gesture and touch data so it’s easy enough to create a python, c#, <insert coding language here> program/script to use it.
We are also planning a bluetooth version with battery for a portable wireless device.
