Quick Look at Leap Motion (Motion Controller): Pt 1

I got hold of Leap Motion today and I was keen to try it out. The possibility of augmenting what is happening on the computer screen by the motion of my hands it exciting.

At lunchtime today, I set it up with some students and we gave it a go. They really liked it and I was quite impressed. All was going well until I tried to load the Leap Motion console and app store which meant connecting over the internet. The big problem was…

It does not work over a proxy. This meant of course, I can not use it at school at the moment.

According to the forums I have read, they are addressing this problem.

I have taken it home now and in the next video I will demonstrate using some of the apps that you can use.
