Leap Motion

My Leap Motion controller (www.leapmotion.com) turned up this week and is a lot of fun. Masayuki Akamatsu has already created a Max object for the device – here – and so it was a pretty quick task to try this out in mmi. I’ve uploaded a quick vid showing some plucking with the leap motion – the frame rates suffer a bit when using the video capture software, but you get the idea.

This basic example only uses the palm positions and orientations to control the instrument – there is clearly a lot more to explore using finger data.
