S107 RC Helicopter and the Microsoft Kinect
Flying a S107 RC Helicopter using the Microsoft Kinect and the Arduino Uno. The Kinect detects my hands, head, and hips. This information is translated into x, y, z coordinates, processed with some 7th grade Algebra, and then sent to the Arduino over the serial port. The Arduino receives the signal, and converts it to a 38 kHz Infrared signal that the S107 can understand. I've provided more information on this page codingfun.collinboy.net Hope to have this demo and other cool gadgets at the Kitsap Maker Festival in June! Final note The "I did it" line at the end of the video is in memory of my son Collin. I'd give all this up to have you back kiddo!
