    Show and Tell: Hand Gestures with Leap Motion

    the_dovid

      Hey, friends.

       

      I've been wondering for a while if it was possible to use the Leap Motion Controller to trigger keyboard triggered hand gestures.  So I found a cheap one on ebay and whipped up this little experiment:

       

      This uses a third-party app called gamewave that allows for highly customized mapping of gestures to actions.  For this test, all i did was set it to detect when each hand was moving upward and simulate a keyboard press, whcih then triggered a simple forward/reverse layer cycle.

       

      With more experimentation, I think a lot more is possible.
