Reader Geert Bevin let us know about a new application his company Uwyn is working on, GestureControl for the Leap Motion Controller.
The Leap Motion is an extremely precise USB motion sensor that’s expected to be released in May, priced at $80.
GestureControl has been designed for live performance and it operates at extremely low latency, while requiring very little resources on your computer. It can thus perfectly run alongside any MIDI capable software.
In this demo, Bevin demonstrates some of the configuration capabilities while using Native Instrument’s Razor synth in Reaktor. Continue reading

Developer Andy Somers let us know about his AirHarp app for the Leap Motion USB motion sensor:
AirHarp is the result of a weekend hacking session with a Leap Motion dev board. Leap Motion is a highly precise and responsive motion tracking device, making it a perfect tool for expressive musical interactions.
AirHarp is being developed in C++ using my audio processing toolkit, MusKit. The source code for both projects is available at http://github.com/adamsomers.
