Easy Leap UI

EasyLeapUI

EasyLeapUI is a set of tools to quickly and easily create user interactions using the LeapMotion controller. It contains Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) such as buttons, toggle groups, and sliders. Future releases will also contain Natural User Interfaces (NUIs).

Before you begin

EasyLeapUI requires the Orion software update. It can be downloaded for free from: https://developer.leapmotion.com/orion

The LeapPinchDetector.cs script (already included in this project) is also required for detecting pinches. It can be downloaded for free with the Leap Pinch Utilities: https://developer.leapmotion.com/unity#modules

LeapPinchGUI

These are GUIs that you can interact with by pinching.

  • LeapPinchButton: Allows actions to be invoked when the button is pinched.
  • LeapPinchToggle: A button with an ‘on’ and ‘off’ state. Can be used to perform any two-state actions, such as showing and hiding an object.
  • LeapPinchToggle_Group: A group of toggles (LeapPinchToggle_GroupElement) in which only one toggle can be ‘on’ at any time.
  • LeapPinchSlider: Allows choosing a floating point value between a specified lower and upper bound.

Examples

An example scene is available in the following directory: EasyLeapUI/Scenes/Example.unity

The EasyLeapUI_Examples.cs script shows how methods are hooked to the GUIs and NUIs.
