The hand gesture controller makes it possible to control applications using hand tilt angle values. Actually, the hand gesture controller uses an accelerometer, it is possible to use it wherever tilt is provided and control projects. For example, controlling with head movements other than hand movements.
It also allows you to do this control wirelessly. Let’s take a look at the video on how it works.

The Hand Gesture Controller includes an accelerometer and it detects the motion by comparing the acceleration on any axis with set thresholds.The accelerometer can measure the static acceleration of gravity in tilt-sensing projects. The hand gesture controller acts as a transmitter, so a receiver circuit is required.

The hand gesture controller contains three main hardware:

1) nRF24L01 Transceiver Module

Frequency Range 2.4 GHz ISM Band
Communication Range: 800+ m (line of sight)
2) ADXL335 Accelerometer

X axis Y axis Z axis
Minimum full-scale range of ±3 g
3) Arduino Pro Mini -

ATmega328 Microcontroller
3.3V 8 MHz”
