We learned so much on the ground with our developer community in 2014. Translating soothing gestures into meditative brainwaves on EEGs. Springing drones to life. Navigating new ways of thinking about user interfaces in VR.

You’ve built incredible things this year, and along the way, we’ve based many of the experiments, resources, and examples found in the Developer Portal on your feedback and feature requests. We can’t wait to keep that conversation going in the New Year. And now, for a bit of inspiration, behold – our 2014 Shortlist of Virtual Superlatives:

Digital technologies in the operating room can be powerful tools for surgeons, but only as long as they can be controlled without compromising sterile procedures. In the last of our AXLR8R spotlight videos, DriftCoast co-founder Hua (Michael) Chen talks about how he was inspired to use Leap Motion technology to open up new interactive possibilities within the OR. Their […]

By creating a game that forced his eyes to work together, cross-eye sufferer and game developer James Blaha has been working to overcome his condition and retrain his brain with the power of gamification.

While truly smart digital assistants are still on the horizon, recent advances in voice recognition and control technologies are taking us closer to sci-fi dreams like Iron Man’s AI JARVIS or Her’s Samantha.

What if controlling a robotic arm felt as natural as moving your own arm? Meet the Anthropomorphic Augmented Reality Controller (AARC) – a natural user interface that makes it easy to control robotic arms and save lives in the field.

Anastasiy and Crispy Driven Pixels envision a simple, easy-to-use artistic interface that lets you create almost anything you can imagine with just your hands in the air.

LivePainter wants to change how we create animations with a motion-controlled in-browser platform.

Experimental headsets are changing how we see the world, either by creating the virtual worlds of our imaginations or adding ghostly layers on top of the real world. At the LEAP.AXLR8R, GetVu’s vision lies between these two extremes – an augmented reality platform where 3D models appear to exist in real space, amongst real objects.

Could physical therapy be fun, addictive, and stress-free? Last month, LEAP.AXLR8R founder Arvind Gupta showed how Ten Ton Raygun is gamifying the road to recovery for stroke and accident victims. Along with fellow AXLR8R developer Diplopia, they believe that motion control and game mechanics are a powerful combination in overcoming health issues. In our latest spotlight video, Ten […]

Imagine a fully interactive augmented reality – an extra layer on top of our world that we can see, grab, and control. At the LEAP.AXLR8R, GetVu is exploring the boundaries of augmented reality with a platform that combines computer vision with human vision in a wearable device. With Leap Motion interaction, they envision a future […]
