We want to bridge the gap between technology and creativity and enable users to interact with what they make.
What it does
Our project takes in hand gesture infrared sensor inputs from a LeapMotion sensor and translates them into creation and manipulation of procedurally generated geometric objects on the computer screen.
How we built it
We originally started the project by trying to generate shapes for jewelry design. As we programmed, we saw the potential of the LeapMotion sensor to link the digital and physical worlds and allow the user to take creative control.
Challenges we ran into
The mathematics involved behind procedural generation and digital animation were complex and difficult to implement. However, we were able to persevere and complete our project.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of effectively incorporating the LeapMotion sensor into our project.
What we learned
Through creating our project, we learned about the importance of good software engineering practices to allow the team to continue to collaborate together in programming.
What's next for Motivity
In the future, we hope to bring our project into three dimensions for a more immersive experience.
