Leap Motion 3D Jam Coming to London this Weekend

Leap Motion will be bringing its 3D Jam tour to London this weekend as part of its world tour of nine cities offering a crash course on integrating 3D motion control and interaction design into virtual reality (VR), desktop, and beyond for anyone interested.

At the Leap Motion 3d Jam will be designer/developer Martin Schubert who will be presenting his VR application Weightless, which won second place in Leap Motion’s 2014 3D Jam. Attendees will be able to join the developer for a discussion on designing motion control for VR and more.


Also speaking at the event will be Peter Ehrlich, core maintainer of Leap Motion’s Javascript library, who will be talking on emerging best practices for building the 3D web. Ehrlich will also delve into the basics of building interactions with the Leap Motion Javascript API.

There will be two demos available to try at the Jam, one being Schubert’s Weightless which places the user in a space shuttle atmosphere, using fluid interaction mechanics to test the boundaries of current VR paradigms. And VR Cockpit which is a prototype exploring UI possibilities utilizing some of the VR widgets developed at Leap Motion HQ.

The Leap Motion 3D Jam is taking place on Saturday 15th August, starting at 6pm GMT. The event is free to attend but places are limited, so if you’re interested go to the Eventbright page to register. VRFocus will be following the latest news and updates from Leap Motion and report back.
