Setup instructions are on my website at:
The latest hand shake system uses the BBC micro:bit. One microbit is worn on the wrist and a second is connected to a laptop or communications device. When a gesture is made, the motion is detected by the microbit on the wrist. This microbit uses its radio to signal the microbit connected to the laptop. This microbit then triggers an event on the laptop through the USB cable connected to the laptop. The trigger can also be used as switch to control communications software, such as Smartbox’s Grid software. Thanks to Sensory Software for giving me a licence for this software to allow me to test the hardware with it.
