Since the Leap Motion sensor was released last year, quite a lot of people have been excited about the possibilties the tool could bring. Hailed as a portable Kinect, a lot of designers have been experimenting to see what the machine can actually do for them.
Recently I came across a few interesting experiments designers have been performing with the interface to see how the tool might work in design software. (Videos after the break).
The first is a pair of Maya users (3D digital effects CAD) who are experimenting with the Leap Motion as a substitute for the mouse. (Autodesk also does a nice demo video for their Leap Motion plug-in here).
