What did I Create?

Reach into Swoosh and control your music in a whole new way. The Leap Motion Controller tracks both hands and all 10 fingers with incredible speed – so you can play, perform, and jam without touching anything.
Use an iPhone, goPro or Canon DLSL to record, overlay and play back mixed reality experiences

Dump the dull iTunes music experience for more hands-on fun.

Swoosh simulates vinyl control with that vintage pitch sound. Intuitively reach in to control track playback, audio effects and looping. A multiplayer, multi hand experience that was specifically designed for the Leap Motion Controller. Listen, music is always a good idea, so leap in.

The app leaves it up to the user to explore this new world and find the pockets of interaction for themselves. Swoosh utilizes the entire gamut of natural movements to create an experience that grows as your skills evolve. The more you use the app the more you'll find your hands egging you towards the view of the Leap Motion Controller wanting to play in this new musical playground. There's a slight learning curve but highly addictive once you've been hooked in by the syncopated beats of Swoosh.

Definitely for someone who knows what they're doing but this is definitely Minority Report for DJ's

Unique Color Pallet Framework

In order to have the applications color pallet change dependant on the selected track and cover art I developed an Quartz Composer plugin that picks out four primary colors from an image (the cover) and updates the screen accordingly

Leap Motion Plugin for Quartz Composer

We created the Offical Quartz Composer Leap Motion Plug-In and gave it away free to the Quartz Composer Community. You can download it for free here.
