Life In Motion
“Here we make use of the leap motion technology with which we can easily control quadcopter using hand gestures that reduces the burden of using a remote”
Quadcopter is a lightweight flying device that can be used for examining areas that would otherwise be hard to reach for a human. Many quadcopters are equipped with tools such as a GPS and automatically leveling cameras.
WHAT IS LEAP MOTION?
Leap Motion, Inc. is an American company that manufactures and markets a computer hardware sensor device that supports hand and finger motions as input, analogous to a mouse, but requires no hand contact or touching.
The Leap Motion controller is a small USB peripheral device which is designed to be placed on a physical desktop, facing upward. Using two monochromatic IR cameras and three infrared LEDs, the device observes a roughly hemispherical area, to a distance of about 1 meter. The LEDs generate pattern-less IR light and the cameras generate almost 200 frames per second of reflected data. This is then sent through a USB cable to the host computer, where it is analyzed by the Leap Motion software using “complex maths”

Other parts you will need:
Step 1: Remote Controller:
3. Once you take out the left potentiometer there are 2 things you need to do –
First you have to add two 2.5K resistors as shown in the circuit picture.
Next thing you have to do is to short three points as shown in the picture.
Step 2: Digital to Analog Cards:
Step 3: Flip Button:
You can find the code here:
If you dont require the code then just run “LeapDino.exe”
