Using this magic magnetic field shield to enable your Raspberry Pi with 3D gesture recognition

This 3D Gesture & Tracking Shield for Raspberry Pi is based on Microchip MGC3130 chip, which enables the Raspberry Pi with 3D gesture recognition and motion tracking function. It can capture x y z position information, can also do proximity sensing and touch sensing, support tap and double click.

As shown in the figure below, the recognition area is divided into two parts: the strip area distributed around and a central panel.

This hat communicates with Raspberry Pi via the I2C interface, also we have reserved a Grove I2C connector in case you need to work with other modules.

What an amazing module, with the help it, you can use gestures to control lights, TV, speakers... Just unleash your imagination and create more magical projects.

Nice price but that last picture is a bit misleading as the board is only 5x6cm in size...

Now if they could get one of these with a display on the front I would be very very happy - no touch, just swipe.
Need Pi spray - these things are breeding in my house...
