Jordan and Jack, who are students at Beaumont, kindly volunteered to have a go at testing HandShake. The aim was to turn on an LED light through hand gesture. Please have a look at the video below. When the students move their hand, the gesture is detected and the blink1 USB LED flashes. The real aim of HandShake is to enable the students to operate their communications software. In the video you can see that the two students can move their hands with different strengths. HandShake can be tuned to the sensitivity level needed for each student using the buttons on the front of either of the boards.
