JavaFX3D and Leapmotion

Last weekend I've created a prototype application based on LeapMotion and JavaFX3D technology.

Thanks to José Pereda who generously opensourced his Leap3DFX project I was able to mash up features of ControlsFX and JavaFX3D in a few hours to create the application shown above.

I wanted to explore how you could combine the JavaFX Widgets and 3D content and how you could interact between the two worlds. Furthermore it was interesting to see what is necessary to load 3D models created with Blender - for this task there exist also libraries which make it trivial to load complex models into your scene.

Check out the source at github (and also the original post about leap motion on José's blog!)
