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.

October Meetup Featuring Leap.js and HTML5
This month’s Leap Motion Developer Meetup will explore how natural interactions are changing the way we think about designing for the web and dive into new platforms – with topics including Three.js, LeapTrainer.js, designing for new interfaces, and WebRTC. You’re invited to join us on October 23 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM in San Francisco. RSVP »
Web apps, climb aboard! We’re currently accepting submissions for the new All Links category in the Airspace Store, so that Leap Motion users can discover your web apps. Read more »
Two hands performing a full solo orchestra. Film and theater composer, producer, and arranger Hagai Davidoff talks about his experience with GecoMIDI and a keyboard. Read more »
On Developer Labs, you can find deep insights and technical perspectives on Leap Motion projects, natural user interfaces, and developer communities worldwide.
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.
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.
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.
