I am using the mini breakout board and want to be able to draw data from the LeapMotion controller. Would anyone have any advice on how to do this?
I found this very useful guide to use the Edison along with the Leap Motion controller. Take a look at https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2015/07/13/motion-sensing-with-intel-edison https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2015/07/13/motion-sensing-with-intel-edison .
Yes, this should work on the mini breakout board as well. Notice in the guide, you only need to connect the Multigadget micro USB or J16, digital pin 8 and GND.
For the mini breakout board, you also need to connect to the micro USB port J16, the pin that's mapped to the digital pin 8 in the mini breakout and GND. It's recommended you power your mini breakout board externally as well. Take a look at the hardware guide of the mini breakout board http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005574.html http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005574.html to see the GPIO that's mapped to digital pin 8.
