Use 3D gestures to trigger actions in your Arduino projects!
Juan sent this great Arduino project in! Thanks Juan 🙂
I put together a project video showing how to program an arduino to detect
3D gestures using a cheap accelerometer. The video shows how to get an
arduino pro mini hooked up to the MPU-6050 accelerometer, and visualize the
accelerometer data on a graph to help in programming the gestures. The code
is up on my github as well: https://github.com/juancgarcia/SerIOGrapher
I plan to incorporate this technique into other projects I have on the
backburner, but in the mean time, I wanted to share in the hope some other
makers/hackers might find it useful.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
