Leap Motion - Product Review

This last days...I have been working with the Leap Motion an awesome little device that allow you to control your application by simply using you hands or fingers...no mouse attached -;)

The price as you can see...is very appealing...only $79.99 for endless possibilities...



If you go to the Leap Motion Developers page you will find both the software (to use it) as the SDK to program with it and it comes with many of the most used languages like...


  • C++
  • C#
  • Objective-C (IPhone)
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • Python
  • Node.JS
Of course...there's plenty of community projects to support even more programming environment...which is always really cool...

To actually code with it...it's really easy, as they have done a pretty good job encapsulating everything and giving back only what is needed for a program to run...so the learning curve is really good...


Of course...the Leap Motion is not perfect...but it's a work in progress and updates are coming often...

If you haven't got one yet...I for sure recommend you to do so...it's so much fun to use it and code for it...

So far...I have used the Leap Motion with C++ and Python...where I have built some nice projects...
  • DrawPad! --> C++, Cinder and Leap Motion.
  • Memory Game --> C++, Cinder and Leap Motion. 
  • Sphero_LeapMotion --> Python, Sphero and Leap Motion.
Of course...I'm planning to built more stuff -;) As I'm currently looking forward to learn some Unity3D...

You can watch a little video of my Memory Game here -:)
