This post is a little briefing of the few projects I've done with the Leap Motion controller and JavaFX, most of them just as a Proof of Concept. As the Leap SDK is private for now (though they intend to make it public soon), I won't release any code, just snippets, few screenshots and short videos. At a glance, this is what I'll cover: - The Leap Motion Controller, what you can expect: hands, fingers, tools and basic gestures. - The JavaFX and the Leap threads, change listeners to the rescue. - POC #1. Moving 2D shapes on a JavaFX scene, trapping basic gestures with the Leap. - POC #2. Physics 2D worlds and Leap, a JavaFX approach. - POC #3. JavaFX 3D and Leap, with JDK8 early preview and openJFX Project.
