We were inspired by Jarvis Web from Iron Man and the possibilities of human-computer interaction in the future.

What it does

Jarvis Web is a prototype of how human-computer interaction will look in 10 years. Jarvis Web allows you to interact with the website using hand gestures. You can pan, rotate, zoom, extrude, or flick websites.

How we built it

We used the Leap Motion Javascript API to build our inspector. Jarvis Web can be loaded through a Chrome extension or a bookmarklet.

Challenges I ran into

Our biggest challenge is the Leap Motion's poor job of motion tracking. In 10 years, motion tracking will be drastically better and something like Interactive Web may be used in our day-to-day lives. We also had trouble dealing with angular velocities after 24 hours of no sleep...

Accomplishments that we're proud of

After many failed attempts, we finally got the Leap Motion working! Also, our keyboard interface works wonderfully.

What we learned

We learned how to use the Leap Motion API. Some of us learned some JavaScript, some of us learned angular velocities, and some of use learned how hackathons are like.

What's next for Jarvis Web

Interactive Web can be used to inspect websites in depth. It can be used for presentations, teaching classes, and viewing the web in a more natural, interactive way.
