The overall idea is to use gestures of the hand to control the playback of music. A new way to input into a device as oppose to fingers and thumbs which so many smart devices these days rely on. To do this, multiple FSR sensors will be connected and read by an Arduino, which will then send this data to a Raspberry Pi. On the Raspberry Pi I will write, in Kivy, a touchscreen application to simulate a smart devices interface, including a music player. The readings from the Arduino will then be used by the Pi to recognise certain gestures, associated with which will be an action. Such as playing a song, moving to the next song etc.
