After playing with some of the demo programs I noticed on there was a Processing library on the leap developer site (can be found here). The control program for my hexapod is already written in processing so adding the leap was relatively easy.
All I have done currently is map x, y, z, yaw, pitch & roll of the users hand onto the body of the hexapod. The smoothing and inverse kinematics are then done and sent to the hexapod over TCP/IP. Raspberry Pi on the hexapod receives this with a python script and outputs the values to the servos. Hand tracking with the Leap is enabled or disabled by a key tap gesture with any finger.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
