It’s new apps Wednesday at Leap Motion – when we showcase the latest Airspace and web apps.
This week, we have an app that takes you into the forests of Japan to train in the art of the ninja star. A popular photo browser adds a Mac version, the web delivers two new ways to navigate the world, and we share custom configuration setups for GameWAVE created by the Leap Motion community.
Kyoto Ninja: Hone your ninja throwing skills with Third Axis Labs’ new app for Mac and Windows. In Kyoto Ninja, you can take control of various ninja stars to perfect your technique, and earn points for precision strikes.
Social & Web
PhotoExplore: Newly available for Mac OS X, Exteroceptive’s PhotoExplore for Facebook allows you to fly through a landscape of friends and albums. View, stretch, and like your favorite photos with ease.
Google Maps Control: An early hack by developer Brian R. Jackson, this interactive Google Map allows you to reach out and explore the world. Grab the map with one hand to pan around, or grab with two hands to zoom.
GoSquared Labs Globe: See your site traffic in a whole new way, with this browser experience that maps location analytics to an interactive 3D globe. Use one open hand to turn the globe, and two open hands to zoom in and out.
GameWave Files: After trying out Uwyn’s popular gaming and OS-control app GameWAVE, many Leap Motion community members have posted custom configuration setups for their favorite apps.
On the developer’s site, you can now find configuration files for Windows 7 and 8, Mac OS X, Skyrim, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Bastion, and Guild Wars 2. On another site, we found a great collection of files for titles including Bioshock, Little Inferno, and Minecraft.
We’d love to hear about your experiences as we share the latest apps from Airspace and the web. Post your comments in our latest app forum thread.
Update 9/12/2014: The Airspace Store is now simply called the Leap Motion App Store.
