Swipe, tap or flick your wrist to control your Raspberry Pi with your brand new Flick Panel. Flick Large is a 3D tracking and gesture board that lets you control the Raspberry Pi computer as if by magic!
Flick Large is an extra large sized panel (148mm x 105mm) which connects via the i2c interface to the Raspberry Pi (or other devices) using included jumper wires.
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!
