Not sure if this is in the right place...
I recently bought a Leap Motion intending to use it as a means to complement my Wacom tablet, especially when drawing. While Wacom tablets already have gestures to handle things like pan, scroll, and zoom, I felt that using a Leap Motion to control such actions while focusing the Wacom to drawing duties would be more efficient. I bought several computer control apps from the Leap Motion app store - GameWave, AirInput, AeroTouch, and Touchless for Windows - to see if any would be what I'm looking for, but none really were what I was expecting (GameWave is the closest though, and I'm now using that). So perhaps someone should make a new app for that!
My suggestions would be that the app recognise the following gestures for the following actions:
- pinch and reverse pinch: zoom
- five-finger move: pan/scroll
- one-finger point, circle, and tap: select, move, and snap windows with special on-screen cursor
- five-finger spread: activate window switcher (alt-tab app switcher in modal mode in Windows 8.1 and earlier, the new WinKey-Tab switcher in Windows 10, and Mission Control in OS X - use one-finger point and tap gestures to select windows, similar to how to move them around
- five-finger rotate: control volume (more natural than spinning a finger in circles - it's like grabbing a virtual volume knob)
- both hands moving away from centre: show desktop
I leave it to the people here to come up with ideas for more gestures and actions for them, and perhaps the app would have have some degree of customisability for certain gestures and actions - whether they are enabled, how many fingers to use, etc. - the level of customisability would be similar to OS X touchpad gestures.
And since the Leap Motion is often compared to the gesture interface in Minority Report, perhaps we could also get some ideas from there for additional gestures and actions. The following two clips may be of help:
So, anyone up for this?
