Hey everyone, recently got hold of a sky-writer which is an awesome little electrical near-field sensor for 3D gestures. I was surprised how easy it was to set up and how accurate the readings of the gestures.
Here is the code to get basic readings from the sky-writer (tap, swipe, air-wheel)
I then used this to control my lifx lightbulb. Where a tap would switch the light on, a swipe up/down would adjust brightness and a horizontal swipe would change colours.
You can take a look at the code here and see a little demo below.
