The new DJ experience with LEAP MOTION

After one week of playing with leap motion at the Entertainment Technology Center (Carnegie Mellon University) a team of 2 artist 1 sound designer and two programmers (including myself as a programmer); were able to create a new and easy way to experience the thrive of being a DJ in a Unity3D app.

Working with LEAP MOTION we realized its limitations but we were able to work around them to create an engaging and fun experience for naïve and experienced guest. It was a lot of fun working in this project, even though it was only one week I think we were able to do something very cool and unique.

All the art assets are controlled with a sound analyzer (to be accurate we used the Fast Fourier Transform algorithm). This made that each time the user altered the music, all the art assets would react to it as well; giving the user a sensation of power in the world. The lights also played a big part on the experience. They also reacted to the DJ actions; changing the mood of the world as the user experimented with the controlled and DJ its way!
