The Gesture Recognition Toolkit (GRT) is a cross-platform, open-source, c++ machine learning library that has been specifically designed for real-time gesture recognition.
The GRT has been designed to:
be easy to use and integrate into your existing c++ projects
be compatible with any type of sensor or data input
be easy to rapidly train with your own gestures
be easy to extend and adapt with your own custom processing or feature extraction algorithms (if needed)
The GRT features a large number of algorithms that can be used to:
recognize static postures (such as if a user has their hands in a specific posture or if a device fitted with an accelerometer is being held in a distinct orientation)
recognize dynamic temporal gestures (such as a swipe or tap gesture)
perform regression (i.e. continually map an input signal to an output signal, such as mapping the angle of a user’s hands to the angle a steering wheel should be turned in a driving game)

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.
