Here you can see the precision and accuracy which is possible using this sensor. Below I am trying to learn how to play “twinkle twinkle little star” on a 3D piano. Notice the ring ‘shadows’ which are added to help me locate my fingertips in relation to the piano.

The Leap Motion camera also lets me modulate the volume of notes using several enveloping techniques.

Check out this example where the drumkit is modulated based on the angular velocity of my finger as I imitate a drumstick.
