Distinctions & Hackathons


Oct 2017 - MINOSii

HackUPC: MINOSii

MINOSii aims to provide a way to substitute traditional remotes by the use of multiple accelerometers. MINOSii has two modules. The module on the wrist consist of a microcontroller, a transceiver and a 9-axis sensor used as an axis reference. The other module is a 9-axis sensor seating on the fingertip. The principle of the protoype is simple: the microcontroller reads the values of the two 9-axis sensors and process them to generate a 3D model of the movement that is then sent via the transceiver.
