Leap Motion

pedro's picture

Hello guys!


i know leapMotion is not a new service, but i recently had the necessity to use it for some work, and ofcourse MRL was the platform i used!

With alot of help from Kevin i did reach a final script that uses leap to mimic my index finger and moves a servo accordingly.

The script prints all info from all fingers and palm, however i am only using the index from right hand to control the servos (ofc u can control multiple servos).

ive been a bit out of picture but now im back!!! 

Im at the moment trying to use leap motion to control the myrobotlab! does anyone have a clue on how to do it? i know have been done in the past!


Even if it doesnt work anymore with the changes on MRL what is the best way to implement information from an outside source (leap) into maybe the python interface? Could someone throw me a hint <) thanks alot
