Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, developers and hobbyists may be interested in a new project which has been published to the Hackster.io website this week which demonstrates how a Raspberry Pi media player can be built complete with gesture control system. Watch the video below to learn more about the gesture control system that can be used to pause play and skip tracks on the media centre which is powered by a Raspberry Pi 3 mini PC and connect using Bluetooth.
The build is an intermediate level project and will take approximately three hours to complete depending on your skills. Its creators Massimiliano and Michele Valentini explain more about the inspiration behind the build and its components. “We’re working on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B powered Media Player controlled with Gesture using The Tactigon Board. Both devices includes a Bluetooth Low Energy module, so we decided to use them to semplify to minium the required hardware. We used Raspbian Stretch to help project implementation to people who like it.”
To build your very own jump over to the Hackster.io website five following the link below for details of the build so far. As soon as the team have finalised its details they will then publish the complete build process including source code and links to required libraries on the project page.
