Use canvas as a giant keypad

Started by Boole


I'd love to be able to use Canvas as a giant keypad. Would be great to get some notifications when some gesture are applied on Canvas in order to trigger some other stuff (music volume, next radio station, music on or off)
Best of all, is to get these gesture notifications as triggers in the Nanoleaf IFTTT channel….

If you are on windows, check out the latest Synapse release.
It does exactly what you are asking for.

If you want to put on your developer hat, the Canvas does have a Gesture API, and TouchDataStream API which allows you to build these triggers on your own as well.

Let me know if you have any questions



Thx for this reply ! Will definitively investigate on Razer synapse… This could be soooo cool. And why not try to use on my own the API….

BTW, after some research, found a very interesting page showing how to develop a small Python service decoding the canvas gestures…

All the best :)
