We were inspired by our interest in creating an app that could facilitate people all over the world in making simple tasks easier and much more efficient to perform.
What it does
Master Hand utilizes the Pebble smartwatch, which when moved in certain directions, performs a specific task, such as pausing and playing a video, regulating volume, playing Spotify playlists, and more.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
It was difficult to use the Pebble Watch since we didn't know C, and some of their stuff doesn't work since they went out of business. Also, it was hard to convert the accelerometer data into gestures since none of us worked with vector analysis before.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
What's next for Master Hand
We want to integrate our app with Android Wear and Apple Watch and to create more commands for more tasks. Also, we want to be able to program non-linear motion(up, down, side to side), such as cyclical and other curved motions.
