This week, we hear from a developer who has been using the Leap Motion Controller to create interactive physical models. In other news, we have LeapTrainer.js v0.2, a new quadrotor simulator, a rope physics game prototype, and a soccer game model controlled from a custom-built Leap Motion stand. Plus, a Leap Motion video that was chosen as FWA’s Site of the Day
