Hi, I'm Aleks and I am a programmer, hacker, and problem solver. I love to design and build many different things, software or not. Most of my software development experience is with Java, but you will find me developing and messing around with all sorts of technologies. I am also always up for a challenge and love to solve problems. When I'm not at my computer you can find me playing volleyball or video games.
Using a Leap Motion, a Raspberry Pi, and servos, control a peripheral's state and direction through hand gestures. For our peripheral we were using a laser pointer mounted to servos on a crude frame made from a soda can, paper clips, and a breadboard. We also planned to mount it on wheels but didn't have a wifi dongle to make it wireless. Python and Java. Devpost link
