BBC micro:bit projects
hand_gesture is a project to enable people with physical disability to communicate through gesture. One Micro:bit is worn on the wrist and a second is connected to a laptop or communications device. When a gesture is made, the motion is detected by the Micro:bit on the wrist. This Micro: bit uses its radio to signal the Micro:bit connected to the laptop. This Micro:bit then triggers an event on the laptop through the USB cable connected to the laptop. The trigger can also be used as switch to control communications software, such as Smartbox's Grid software.
