I just wanted to show some progress with my "experience". The game is called "Windows 8.1 Desktop" and you will be able to just normally use your VR projected Windows Touch Desktop floating steady over your real desktop in natural size. Of course the mouse and keyboard can also be used additional to touch. It uses a ray-tracing shader rendering up to 3000 fps and eliminating subpixel-blur generated by intermediate scan-line buffers - a problem with double texture picking. Also there are no multiple render-passes needed, This gives really low latency of well under 1ms. You will also notice the regular outer cushion bars are not visible. Ray-tracing also makes this possible without wastefully oversized big buffers. This gives you an even extra field-of-view on the outer edges.

This is cool. I use VR Desktop regularly so having gestures in a similar environment would make it ever better.
It is not about gestures (like leap hand gestures), just a standard touchscreen floating in the air, plus desktop capable but you will actually find your mouse or escape-key because you can see it. Just pinch zoom, swipe etc. on the virtual screen as you would do with any other touchscreen!
Yeah I meant gestures like pinch zoom, swipe to scroll etc. I wouldn't want to replace mouse 100%, it is tiring to use interfaces solely with your hand, but I'd love to be able to scroll websites and resize windows on the fly.
Yeah, that's what you will be able to do! A simple Tab is right now still the most tricky thing, since you have to tab really fast. Scrolling works wonderful. And I like actually "seeing" my real mouse, not just the pointer. Real world picture made me start eating cookies still wearing the Oculus Rift...
Solved Tabbing and Multitouch - works like a charm now! Even swipe keeps its inertia. Must say that TouchInjection-API is a delicate one, don't even dare to mess with it and having one value set wrong or even more advanced multitouch than the oversimplified samples (f.e. one finger leaves not the same moment as the other one etc.) - a nightmare...
So, here is my Alpha version for the contest:
Watching my demo gone online, on a virtual screen... something reminds me on inception right now, or wait... the bunch of kids I recently tested my Demo with told me something quite similar!!
Can someone please confirm my "Release Candidate" is running?
For everyone interested, I just made an update to my application with RC6 you are now able to place the Virtual Desktop anywere in 3D-Space. This is great for situation were your Oculus Rift Tracking-Camera was very near or had any other unfomfortable position. Also placing the Virtual Desktop slightly diagonal to the Oculus Rift Tracking-Camera helps you not occluding it with Hands interaction on the Virtual Touchscreen.
For thouse without Windows 8 or the Oculus Rift, I just added a Video to the download section.
I'd love to use it but have seen that you have removed the binaries. Any chance of emailing it to email@example.com?

Can yo uuse Windows 7 ninstead of windows 8.Also can you set it so the Virtual Touch Desktop Screen appears Right above the LEAP MOTION itself, that way you can Move the leap motion around and the screen will follow?, IF SO PLEASE TELL ME MORE i'm wanting to buy myself and bAckpack PC with An leapmotion , trying to figure out a way to place the LEAP on the arms that way you would have an touch Air display On the go.
