Web developers, start your engines – we’re taking submissions for web links in the Airspace Store and highlighting web apps at this month’s developer meetup. On Developer Labs, Hagai Davidoff describes the experience of playing an entire live orchestra. Plus, a Matlab MEX interface, 3D mesh finger painting, semantic searches and big data, writing in the air, and a robotic arm.

On Developer Labs, you can find deep insights and technical perspectives on Leap Motion projects, natural user interfaces, and developer communities worldwide.
Community Toolkit

jeffsp posted a simple Matlab MEX interface for the Leap Motion Controller. It returns a struct containing frame timestamp, ID, and pointables – with each pointable containing ID, position, velocity, and direction.

mirostraka created a small Windows app that converts your finger position to a mesh with variable brush sizes.

To see the latest UI elements and sample code shared by the community, check out Links & Libraries. You can share your code on the Projects & Collaborations forum.

Forum Highlights

Semantic searches and big data. Built on LeapTrainer.js, roboleary’s latest projects let you perform a semantic search with voice commands and browse the results with Leap Motion control – including reaching out to control a 3D graph.

8pen shared a preview of their latest project, which uses the Leap.js library to let you write in the air – representing each letter by a distinct looping motion.

Makeblock posted a video of a robotic arm with Leap Motion control that can pick up and move objects.

Developer Events

HTML5 Developer Conference

Moscone North, San Francisco, CA
October 22–23, 2013

Along with hosting our official meetup, we’re also proud to be a sponsor at this month’s HTML5 DevConf – so if you’re in San Francisco for one event, we hope you’ll take the chance to attend both.
