Abstract – Remi Stevens This project involves the implementation of a computer program that allows a user to interact with a computer without using the traditional input methods like a keyboard and mouse. The leap motion device is the device that the application is developed for, it is an infra-red based motion sensor that tracks our hands. The program will then record the motions that hands above the device make and interpret those motions as on screen movements which a user can then press keys to perform functions in the program such as key presses and loading and saving documents. The reason this application is being made is to explore the use of, and determine whether this kind of application can become a replacement for traditional computer input methods. The results of this project were positive, they showed how even though there was a learning curve in its use it could be used as an alternative to a keyboard. This outcome means that with more development products like this could replace keyboards.
