I am pleased to announce AirBeats for Leap Motion! This app allows you to play the drums in air with your bare hands or using pencils, chop sticks, or drum sticks.
Choose between 192 different drum sounds arranged in twelve kits in the styles of Hip Hop, Acoustic, Dubstep, and more. Play along to the pre-recorded patterns, or create your own entirely new beats. You can also export your creations for further use in music sequencing software.
This app is tons of fun to mess around with for anyone who has a tendency to tap along to their tunes. If you've ever wanted to try your hand at the drums, this is a great way to get started. Enjoy!
Maker Faire is huge convention for geeks and tinkerers from all walks of life. In this talk I discuss the the benefits and challenges one encounters when working with 3D gesture input. The talk also lends some contextual and historical background to what we do at Handwavy.
It's every geek's dream to be featured in a popular tech blog. My good friends at Smule threw a big music technology bash recently, and I was lucky enough to cross paths with some reporters from Engadget. Check out the video here: http://www.engadget.com/2013/04/13/airbeats-airharp/
Being local to the San Francisco area, I've had the great privilege of meeting the brilliant and dedicated people at Leap Motion. They have an unwavering commitment to providing excellent service to developers, and in so doing they receive a huge amount of feedback from us. As an active member of their developer community, I have been given the honor of being profiled as such in the first of a series of videos.
