MGC3130 3D gesture recognition controller 10 cm detection range (200 positions per second) Multitude of movement patterns (gestures) supported IDC10 connector cable included (I2C interface)
The Gesture Board carries Microchip's MGC3130 electrical-field (E-field) based 3D tracking and gesture controller. This brings a new approach to designing intuitive user interfaces, enabling command input via natural hand and finger movements in free space. It's like a touchpad whose input area extends 10cm upwards into space. Users will be able to command an MCU or PC by gesturing with hands and fingers above the board, and by touching and tapping its surface. The silkscreen on the back of the board depicts various supported gestures (flicking, drawing circles, airwheels, taps and double taps and so on).
The board uses I2C serial communication, and comes with an IDC10 cable connector. Two adapters are available for using this board (see options at the bottom of this page). One is an I2C-to-USB adapter that allows you to connect this board to a PC or other USB Host. The other adapts this board's IDC10 pinout to a mikroBUS interface so you can use it just like any of the Click Boards on dozens of development systems and microcontroller platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black, etc.
A zero-Ohm resistor (solder jumper) on the back of the board allows you to select the I2C address (in position 0 by default).
