Makikuna is focused around the purpose of providing a world-class education to those who can not afford one, or suffer from disabilities such as deafness. We seek to offer an interactive learning environment to both motivate and help a child succeed with the use of modern technology.
What it does
Utilizing human motor functions, specifically hand movements, in order to engage the student with their learning experience to optimize their success and motivation by taking advantage of the use of modern technology.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
There were some issues attempting to create the wireless connections with the Arduino glove. As well as figuring out how to utilize the movement of fingers to represent a numerical value to solve mathematical problems.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are first and foremost proud of making use of both hardware and software. The Adruino glove is our biggest innovative accomplishment, in which we all contributed to in our own unique ways.
What we learned
We learned how to connect an Arduino board, and to configure its wires. Additionally, we had the opportunity to use an astounding product, Leap Motion. We learned how to use Leap Motion,
What's next for Makikuna
Makikuna has many plans for the future! We are driven to implement other great features such as text-to-speech reading comprehension, face recognition to determine difficulty of question, a close-knit community for all users, saving your progress and weekly challenges to significantly boost motivation and the overall experience!
