Swipe, tap or flick your wrist to control your Raspberry Pi with your brand new Flick HAT. Flick HAT is a 3D tracking and gesture board that lets you control the Raspberry Pi computer as if by magic!

Flick HAT is compliant with the Raspberry Pi's HAT standard size (65mm x 56.50mm) and plugs directly on top of your Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3. Flick HAT connects via the Pi's i2c interface.

Flick uses technology that enables the PCB to detect your gestures from up to 15cm away in 3D space. Draw a circle with your hand - Flick will track it. Touch, swipe, tap, double tap - Flick will track it. Flip, flap, flop, flick, left, right, up, down - Flick will track it!

Integrate Flick into your Raspberry Pi project to give you multiple ways of controlling it. Using near field gesture technology, you’re able to hide your project behind the non-conductive material (wood/acrylic) and still use Flick. Please Note. Mounting behind materials may reduce the sensor range.

Plug and play functionality allows you to get up and running within minutes. Use ModMyPi's software libraries to fully explore what you can do with Flick. Control your computer, TV, music system and more all with a Flick of the wrist!

  • Rain Gauge Data Logger
  • Summary A Raspberry Pi 3B is used to collect digital counts from an electronic rain gauge (1mm of rain per reed switch closure by magnetic see-saw). It has been running without issues for over 12 months. A UPS powers the Pi so it is immune from short power glitches. The total count is displayed on an LCD screen with reset and inc/dec test buttons. “To HTML” and “To LCD” routines are also included to simp...
  • Television Media Centre
  • Introduction: I have a flat screen television that is about 7 years old that I purchased before Smart TVs were commonly available. What I wanted to achieve with My Pi project was to turn my slightly old TV into a media centre. I wanted to play music through my TV as well as play saved movies and stream internet content. It was important for me to be able to stream ABC iView and SBS On Demand as they provide a free service and ...
  • DIY Pi Buggy
  • The motivation behind this project came from a robotics and engineering club that I've been going to. I've been saving my money and building up an understanding of raspberry pi and electronics. The reason I chose this project was to get used to using motors and controlling different speeds. I am self taught as I am home schooled and my mum and dad (who are my teachers) don't understand how to use the raspberry pi! The project is...
  • Mass SD card Image Writer
  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...
