I got my LeapMotion sometime last year but I haven't put it to much use outside of the sample VR apps that came with it. After discovering a Java SDK for it, I decided to use it to control a Rover that I built.
Here are some prerequisites for software installation that must be done prior to implementing the system:
- Java and Leap Motion: Follow the instructions on https://developer.leapmotion.com/documentation/java/index.html to properly install the necessary Java libraries for the LeapMotion and to properly set your classpath when you work on your Java code.
- Photon: Ensure that the following libraries are installed in order to make your Photon code work with the PhoBot shield.
