Here's the latest project I've been working on: controlling the TV using gestures instead of a remote control. Mainly inspired by my kids being able to handle a tablet but not a remote control, it could perhaps also help to Make Life Accessible.

 

The project consists of a Raspberry Pi A+, Skywriter HAT and IR LED and receiver. Using Lirc IR signals were recorded from the original remote and can then be reproduced by the Pi.

As always, schematics, code, etc ... are available in a full blog post on my website: Gesture Based TV Remote Control – Frederick Vandenbosch
