When we launched the Airspace Store, we heard from lots of developers excited about getting their web apps and other creations into the app store. Today, we’re happy to announce that we’re introducing support for browser-based experiences alongside native apps. We’re ready to take your submissions for the new All Links category. Each link has […]

This week in Airspace, take to the skies in a hang glider or run your hands through a peaceful pool of water. In the new browser-based game HelloRun, you can fly through the winding corridors of a spaceship. Plus, we’ve made it easier for you to discover the latest apps in the Airspace Store with […]

In my never-ending quest to figure out the ‘best’ way to interact with the Leap Motion Controller, I find a lot of my thoughts focusing on camera movements. In the case of the Universe of Sound, this meant flying from galaxy to galaxy by holding your hand flat, but I also wanted to explore other methods of camera movements.

Data is beautiful, there is no denying it. It might be hard to see this beauty when its in a JSON file or *shudders* an Excel spreadsheet, but data is immaculate. For me, one of the most exciting parts of the Leap Motion Controller is that it allows access to near-infinite data.

Creating interfaces is really difficult. It’s especially difficult when you are making interfaces for something that has not been researched before. The way you interact with the computer is different if you are using a trackpad, mouse, or touchscreen – and especially a Leap Motion Controller. Some actions are easier, and others are harder, so each interface should be made with these restrictions and freedoms in mind.

What wouldn’t have been possible without the Leap Motion Controller?

Every time I start a new project, this is the first question I ask myself. The answer is of course infinite, but to try and parse that infinity into a simple answer is always more difficult than I first expect. Many times, I’ll try to think about what another application looks like in ‘Leap Space’. For example, think about the game Snake. It may be the most simplistic application in the world, but what exactly would it look like in ‘Leap Space’?

When creating new demos for the Leap Motion Controller, the first question I tend to ask myself is: ‘How can I create something that was not possible to make before?’ This line of thought tends to lead me to a place of wondering how I can make a spaceship that lets me wing suit base jump on the moons of Jupiter, but sometimes it just makes me want to create a demo. One of the things that really excites me about the Leap Motion Controller is the extra dimension of interaction, especially when it pertains to 3D objects.
