Skywriter gesture control

A gesture control project using a skywriter and Arduino Leonardo

A Leonardo/pro micro/ATmega32u4-based-board is required for this project, as it needs to be able to masquerade as a keyboard. All gestures are translated to keyboard commands or sequences and sent to the host that way.

Due to the fact that a lot of the keyboard shortcuts used are ones I have defined myself, some tweaking will be needed for other systems.

Linux redshift users may find the redshift_increment.sh script useful, so I have included it. To use it, setup a decrease keyboard shortcut for the following:

bash /home/$USER/redshift_increment.sh -

and an increase shortcut for this:

bash /home/$USER/redshift_increment.sh +

You will also need a copy of the pimoroni skywriter library.
