With technology advancing at an astronomical rate, we are witnessing events today that a few years ago were only conceptualized in movies. From humanoid robots to the famous Mars Rover, the possibilities are endless. Leap Motion is an example of ground-breaking technology that has the potential to change the way we control machines and therefore, how we control our world! Leap Motion is a sensor that is currently used to navigate through a personal computer with just hand gestures. For our MQP, the team has used this technology to control a physical robot arm. For the second part of this project, the team used SolidWorks to design a six-degree-of–freedom robot arm with five human-like fingers. The robot was designed to be controlled by Leap Motion, with human hand gestures as the input.
