** Give the game a try too! I promise, it'll be fun (download link ABOVE)!
I've implemented normal mouse controls as well for those who do not own a Leap Motion Device.

[MUST-READ]
YOU HAVE TO WAIT, and hold still BEFORE you draw anything. The screen will lit up.
If that's too hard for you. Just press [R] and you will have normal menu controls ;)

[Description]
Initially I wanted to do implement a real-time Shape recognition algorithm and use it for UI/Menu navigation. However, the usability of it was questioned by many testers. Especially, due to the fact that a lot of wrong shapes were recognized. It took quite a lot of time to improve the precision. And it's finally here!

[Game]
As for the (rythm-based) game: Happy Rythmic Leaping!

[Goal]
Create a rythm-based experience which can be played without prior knowledge of its mechanics, and introduce a new way of UI-navigation.

[TO-DO]
I've added support for multiple fingers (more than 2) already (but I have not released this version yet, because it gets REALLY confusing without tutorial). Especially when you're able to slide around, spin around etc. It simply drags down your experience. I'm currently working on it.

Thanks for checking out this game!

Very smooth feeling gameplay and cool menu system!

Thanks for your nice feedback on Control Sphere. For my thesis I will be sure to mention different gesture-based approaches like your shape recognition menu.

Cheers!

Amazing game. Can't get enough

Woah, Hereson thanks so much for this, it's awesome!

it's cool how you made shape recognition menu, would be good in a spell casting game maybe

I'm just testing out shape recognition for menu selection! Draw the shape and see what happens!
