What is Hover?

Hover is a development kit that lets you control your hardware projects in a whole new way.  Wave goodbye to physical buttons.  Hover detects hand movements in the air for touch-less interaction.  It also features five touch-sensitive regions for even more options.


As seen on



Just Hover

Hover can recognize up, down, left and right swipes up to 5 inches away.  Interact with your projects by just hovering your hand.



Or Simply, Touch

Hover has 5 capacitive pads and can recognize north, west, south, east, and center touch events.  Double taps are supported along with multiple touch events at the same time.
