SNIBBE STUDIO RELEASES TWO AWARD-WINNING APPS FOR THE NEW LEAP MOTION PLATFORM: GRAVILUX AND OSCILLOSCOOP
San Francisco, July 22, 2013
Two award-winning iOS music apps from Snibbe Studio are now available in Leap Motion™’s new app discovery platform, the Airspace™ Store. Leap Motion’s groundbreaking new device allows people to interact with their computer screens simply by waving their hands in the air.
Gravilux for Leap Motion adapts the best-selling iOS musical star field app to a purely natural movement experience: when you point fingers at the screen they all pull on the stars, when you punch with your fist, antigravity repels. Scott Snibbe, the company’s founder, says, “With Gravilux for Leap Motion, you literally have the universe at your fingertips.”
OscilloScoop for Leap Motion allows you to make musical groves by sculpting spinning crowns with your hands. Created by DJ and designer Lukas Girling, the app mashes up turntables, video games, and electronic music into a real-time audiovisual performance. With fingers pointed directly at the screen, people sculpt spinning ‘crowns’—one for tone and one for a digital audio filter. People can also open up their hands and their fingertips directly draw waveforms for the sounds to follow.
“We are thrilled to be among the first developers releasing apps for Leap Motion, and I believe strongly that in the future gesture may dominate human-computer interaction – it’s what people are calling ‘Natural User Interface’ because we’re now communicating with the computer the same way that we communicate with other human beings,” said Scott Snibbe, the studio’s founder and CEO.
