Hover is a gesture and touch development kit and it lets the user to detect the hand movement while it is still in the air and it does not involve any touch interaction. You can interact with the project when you hover the hand and to get rid of the physical buttons. It has five capacitive pads to use for touch input. Hover can let you control the hardware projects in an entire new way.
The kit works with Spark Core, Raspberry Pi and Arduino. It is gesture-supported for right, left, down and up. The touch features have over 5 electrodes and it may be used for the touch input. It is breadboard friendly. The technical options of this app are the gesture detection range which is up to 5 inches; it uses 2GPIOs and 12C in order to connect at a host. It is compatible to 3.3V and 5V microcontroller at the on-board level shifting of 12C lines.
You can easily integrate the Hover on the existing project. It does use 12c in order to communicate to the controller such as Arduino. You can just hook up the guide and to use the library on how you may get up and to start using the kit. This is the same pin mapping that may be used for the arduino board such as Leonardo and Uno. The kit can be used to create the gesture driven musical instrument through adding the speakers or to create the remote control which is touch-sensitive. There are many ways of using the hover. You can swipe in many directions in order to see the images available. You are able to consider the use of the LCD panel in order to display the photo gallery by the use of the touch-less control. There are many touch pads used to offer the controls on the mechanical projects. When you add the double taps, you may have over 10 different events for the touch service.
With the kit, you will be able to say goodbye to the physical buttons. This is just a little capacitive touch sensitive PCB that can fit in any standard breadboard. There are many situations where Hover kit can be used while at the same it can be used like a hybrid interaction. The member in audience may remotely interact with the display and he can appoint at it using the touch enabled pad. A user is able to move around the items at the display and he can drag or release the contact so that he can drop it. The technique for permanent sharing may combine the air pointing to reach to the mode and to the operand input. The interactive options can then become collaborative if the user accepts such transfer through touching an object at a shared display.
The environment of multi-user with the interaction from the distance, it is good to make it clear who is doing the action. This is why the hover pad can be set to be of hybrid interaction, pointing, postures and multi-touch.
