Our team really wanted to work with some of the hardware we had at our disposal while we were here. Neither of us had been to a hackathon before and were excited to get our hands on some of the opportunities afforded to us here. Some of our friends borrowed a Leap motion, but hadn't used it yet, so we began playing around with it to see what it could do. One thing led to another, and we really liked the idea of making a virtual theremin that we could use the Leap capabilities with to make it even better than the original instrument. We think we succeeded.
