The inspiration was to create a universal remote to facilitate interactions with all IoT devices.
What it does
In this proof of concept, we created the capabilities to control music, with the abilities to pause, go back, go forward, replay, and to control volume.
How I built it
We used the dragonboard for its sensor input/output capabilities. The signals were sent to the laptop with a python client-server setup, and multithreaded to enable continuous updates, which generalizes well to the setup of most IoT devices.
Challenges I ran into
The dragonboard had no audio capabilities, and therefore, had to link to a laptop to play audio.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Setting up a client-server in python, figuring out multithreading, how to setup the dragonboard, and how to calibrate sensory input.
What I learned
What's next for smartGlove
To enable more funky music remixing capabilities :D
