Leap Motion + Pan/Tilt Servos

This is a JavaScript application created with CylonJS that uses the Leap Motion controller to give each of two hands control over a pair of pan & tilt servos. It’s a basic exercise in animatronics that could serve as the basis of “puppets” to be controlled without having to use physical touch.

Run a separate, appropriate power supply for the servos instead of relying on Arduino power. I wired a separate 5v, 2a power supply to my breadboard for four micros servos under no load and it works reliably with constant, rapid hand movement & no stalls.
