So I've been working on this project for a year now. It's a gesture controlled robotic arm using the Arduino Yun. I'm not sure how many of you are hardware tinkerers or are interested in Robotics, but this should be quite entertaining either way!
Our project was mainly inspired by Yu Jiang Tham's video of his Node.js based Leap Motion Controlled Robotic Arm. We've taken the concept one step further making it wireless and creating a simple Web Application to control it.
Here's a small video of everything working.

On the CLIENT side we've got => Laptop+Browser+Web Application+Leap Motion
On the SERVER side we've got => 3800mAh Lipo+UBEC+SERVOS-Arduino Yun
Instead of me having to put a huge write-up about the project that almost NO ONE will end up reading, feel free to ask any questions regarding the project and I'll make sure you get a quick reply!
This is awesome!
What are your projected uses for, and next steps to advance this tech?
