Pet-like interactive lamp using hand gesture recognition
As ubiquitous computing technology has been developed, daily life products such as lamps have also become smart. In this project, a lamp applying pet-morphism and hand gesture recognition technique, named as LAMPET, was presented. Hand is one of emotional communication medium with others (e.g., touching, stroking, and various gestural commands). The proposed lamp was inspired from this metaphor of communicating with an artifact through hand gestures. LeapMotion-based hand sensing was applied and LED matrix display and servo motors represent the different state of lamps based on relevant hand information. Sensing sound information was also applied for purpose of entertainment.
