I tried simple programs on Intel Edison like controlling an LED through a node.js app (a simple one) and was wondering – what if I could make something using the Leap Motion Controller? Finally I could create a simple program to trigger an LED bulb by just waving my hand.
In this project I’m connecting the Leap Motion Controller through USB and sending data to Intel Edison through a Processing sketch. The application running on Intel Edison, reads the data and checks whether the users hand is over the Leap Motion & lights an LED.
Sounds really simple right? Check out the full tutorial on Medium.
