If you’ve ever wanted to magically make something move with a wave of your hand, this Raspberry Pi project can make it happen.
This build, from Kurt E. Clothier and Justin Platz, uses a Raspberry Pi (they used the V1 B+ model), some micro servos, a Leap Motion Controller, and a data streaming service called PubNub to make LEDs move and light up with the movement of your hands. You'll also need a computer and a bunch of other electronic components to complete the project, and the set up is pretty in-depth too.
Once it's all put together, however, the motion controller will be able to read your hand movement and finger placement to put on a nifty light show (as seen in the video above). Of course, you could also use the tech to come up with something cool on your own too. Maybe you're building a robot that needs some motion controlled arms, or just want to liven up your parties. You can check out the complete guide at the link below.
