Swipe, tap or flick your wrist to control your Raspberry Pi with your brand new Flick HAT. Flick HAT is a 3D tracking and gesture board that lets you control the Raspberry Pi computer as if by magic!
Flick HAT is compliant with the Raspberry Pi’s HAT standard size (65mm x 56.50mm) and plugs directly on top of your Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3. Flick HAT connects via the Pi’s i2c interface.
Flick uses technology that enables the PCB to detect your gestures from up to 15cm away in 3D space. Draw a circle with your hand – Flick will track it. Touch, swipe, tap, double tap – Flick will track it. Flip, flap, flop, flick, left, right, up, down – Flick will track it!
Integrate Flick into your Raspberry Pi project to give you multiple ways of controlling it. Using near field gesture technology, you’re able to hide your project behind non conductive material (wood/acrylic) and still use Flick. Please Note. Mounting behind materials may reduce the sensor range.
Plug and play functionality allows you to get up and running within minutes. Use the software libraries to fully explore what you can do with Flick. Control your computer, TV, music system and more all with a Flick of the wrist!
