The ZX Distance and Gesture Sensor is a touchless sensor that is capable of looking for simple gestures. The very smart people at [XYZ Interactive](http://www.gesturesense.com/xyz/) have created a unique technology that allows for simple infrared beams to be used to detect an object’s location in two dimensions. That means that not only can you detect gestures or had movements over the board, but you can also use it to determine distance, or how far away an object is from the sensor. The board communicates over I2C or UART. Want to see it in action? Good, we have a video for you.
