Swipe, tap or flick your wrist to control your I2C device with the Flick Large board.
Flick Large is a 3D tracking and gesture board that lets you control your I2C enabled devices as if by magic!
Flick uses technology that enables the PCB to detect your gestures from up to 15cm away in 3D space. Draw a circle, swipe your hand – Flick will track it.
Integrate Flick into your I2C project to give you multiple ways of controlling it. Using the near field gesture technology, you’re able to hide your project behind non conductive material (wood/acrylic) and still use Flick (please note however that mounting it in this way may reduce the sensor range).
Plug and play functionality allows you to get up and running within minutes. Use our software libraries (complete with one line installer) to fully explore what you can do with Flick. Control your computer, TV, music system and more all with a Flick of the wrist!
