Leapmotion controlled lamp with @arduino and node.js

Leapmotion controlled lamp with @arduino and node.js via HaD

The idea behind this work was to explore how to interface Arduino with Leapmotion, and to see what would be the precision we could get with some basic servos.

Everything is surprisingly smooth. Except for the servo when the lamp goes up, because it’s a cheap and weak one.

Since there is no lib to directly connect the Leapmotion to the Arduino, I used node.js to connect to the websocket server that streams the Leapmotion data and the johnny-five node.js lib to control the Arduino and the servos. You can see the source code here: github.com/xseignard/leapLamp


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
