Jake the Dog has a key hand.

What it does

Web app that uses LeapMotion to authenticate user trying to enter their home.

How we built it

Using CodeKit, we hosted a website and plugged in a lot of Leap Motion plugins along with the API.

Challenges we ran into

Getting the Leap Motion hands to display properly was hard. We spent a lot of time working on features that we shouldn’t have.

Accomplishments that we’re proud of

Getting it to work in only a few hours!

What we learned

Different Leap Motion plugins.

What’s next for Jake the Dog Key Hand | Security Corp
