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 […]
LivePainter wants to change how we create animations with a motion-controlled in-browser platform.
Whether taking aerial photos, delivering books, or flipping through the air for fun, quadrotor drones are now more popular than ever. At the same time, developers are continually experimenting with new ways to control them. Here are four videos from Leap Motion developers who hacked quadrotors to create touchless motion-controlled flying machines.
When digital art and physical sculptures are melded together, the resulting creation can be spectacular and strange. Recently, visitors to an exhibition at Eyebeam, an NYC-based art and technology center, discovered what happens when you throw 3D interaction into the mix. You become an artist yourself – creating between the real and unreal. You become […]
Hello again! I’m Bastien Bourineau, project manager and lead developer at OpenSpace3D, and I’m back to introduce the new OpenSpace3D release with improved Leap Motion support – including how we got around the perennial indexing issue. Last time, we saw how you can easily build 3D interactive environments using our free, open-source platform – designed with […]
In the early 20th century, a radical modernist art movement known as Vorticism erupted in Britain but soon withered after the First World War. Recently, I was asked to design a response to this short-lived movement, and I decided to focus on how I never have enough time to do anything.
When you think about it, time can be a very annoying aspect of life. Waiting, wasting, loitering, queueing, decaying, inefficiency, biding, aging, being late – these are all things that irritate me. I blast time!
When a volcano erupts, a large, sunken crater called a Caldera is left in its wake. They are desolate and otherworldly voids, seemingly stolen from a post-apocalyptic future where – left with a blank canvas – we are suddenly faced with the challenge of reconstructing our environment completely from the ground up. But if we […]
I’m Isaac, and I’m an experience engineer at Leap Motion. I work exploring a newly discovered relationship with our hands. I’m intensely interested in communing with digital nature, and the tools that I use are Three.js, Web Audio API, and most of all, Leap Motion. Most of what I have done can be found at cabbibo.com where I have been working on constructing my own personal Ice Kingdom.
Drawing his inspiration from music, mathematics, and the infinite possibilities of space and nature, Leap Motion experience engineer Isaac Cohen likes to push the limits of the web. At last October’s HTML5 DevConf, Isaac showed how we can rethink web design beyond current interfaces and reimagine what the Internet might look like in the future.
