Last year, I wrote a news item about Leap Motion Controller, a new input device that replaces the mouse and trackpad, and allows you to control your computer via gestures.
Now, there’s an entire app store worth of programs that you can use with the Leap Motion.
There, you can find apps like Freeform, a free app for Mac OS and Windows that allows you to create 3D objects by sculpting them with gestures. You can select different Explore materials including glass, clay and plastic, and choose from a variety of sculpting tools. You can also view and work with underlying wireframes and save your creations as .ply, .stl or .obj files.
