Touchless-Touch with Leap Motion and openFrameworks

In recent projects we used the Leap Motion controller for exploring Touchless-Touch. For this purpose we developed the extension ofxLeapTouch for openFrameworks to map the leap space to screen space and emit touch events.

It should be simple to combine the addon with touch responsive UIs, forward the touch events via the TUIO protocol or handle them by yourself. Have a look at the examples and additional features in the README.

The addon is built upon ofxLeapMotion by Theo Watson, which is already using the new Leap Motion SDK (v2 beta) – featuring a promising skeleton model and a significantly improved hand tracking.
