Introduction: Robotic Hand Controlled by Gesture With Arduino + Leap Motion

IMPORTANT: As promised I m making a full step by step instructions: CLICK HERE

Hello everyone, this is just a video about my university final project!

The hand is controlled by Leap Motion + Arduino Uno (Standard Firmata, Nodejs & Johnny Five) + Servo Motors and the hand itself was made with Polymorph. It can recognize each finger and it can move them separately with very good precision and sensibility!

This prototype can be controlled remotly too via a normal web server using ajax/json requests.

Let me know what you think about it and maybe I will publish a complete tutorial when I will have more time... Thank you!

Hello guys,

Thank you for the feedbacks !

I have finally managed to finish my university, so from now on I'm an engineer yaaayy!

I will publish a complete tutorial as soon as I can, don't worry about it, I just need the time to elaborate all the content from italian to english and organize all pictures and videos.

Have a good day from Rome :)

So happy to see this! However, I'm curious as to how you took the input from the leap to the arduino. I'd love to get my coding skills a bit more honed, and I've always been a "learn under fire" kind of guy. Cheers!
