This week a new electronic music application called Muse has been unveiled that has been designed to use the gesture control Leap Motion technology to enable users to create music simply using hand gestures in front of the Leap Motion sensor.
The Leap Motion Muse App has been created jointly by musician BT and Dr. Richard Boulanger of the Berklee College of MusicAnd has been designed to enable you to create and perform your own ambient music by simply moving your hands in the air.
The Leap Motion gesture control sensor offers Kinect style gesture controls for computers systems but with much more enhanced and accurate sensitivity enabling users to make smaller more structured gestures which can be recognised by the system.Watch the videos below to learn more about the Leap Motion Muse application.
