We are sick of using remote controllers in the era of smartphones.
What it does
Using the LEAP MOTION SENSOR, we use human gestures to control a Parrot AR Drone.
How we built it
We used the PS_Drone api and the LeapMotion API to program it in python
Challenges we ran into
Communication between the LEAP and the computer, and between the computer and the drone is really tough
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We accomplished in making the drone fly using basic motions, manipulating the vertical speed, yaw, roll and pitch of the drone's orientation and movements.
What we learned
We learned how to use API effectively, as this is our first hackathon as a team, it was really hard at the beginning, but then we adapted and managed to finished our basic features.
What's next for LeapMotion Drone
This project is a pathway to the future, where drones, cars, and VR can be more adaptive using hand gestures, and even body gestures.
