In the early stages of app development, the ability to listen and adapt to user feedback can be crucial. It’s been a few weeks since we last checked in with the LivePainter team, who want to change how we create animations with a motion-controlled in-browser platform. Based on feedback from their alpha users, they’re now working on a more streamlined version of their original vision – a super-easy experience that anyone can use, including more pre-made templates to help people get started.

With their project Animakeit! you’ll be able to add pre-created images and move them around within a scene using the Leap Motion Controller. The team hopes to inspire first-time animators to take the crucial first step, and play with the power of motion control in a fun new way.
