Hand Gesture Robotics

What is this course about?

Hand Gesture Robotics, Ever thought of controlling it with your hand gestures. I wish I could control everything with my hand gestures. Sitting on a chair and controlling things, like a BOSS. I loved the thought of it. So I finally came out with a cool DIY hand gestures controlled robot, which can follow the commands shown by hand. Sounds crazy but I promise it’s very simple.
