Summary:

This is my more recent attempt at a Mouse emulation for the Leap Motion for general OS control and internet browsing. I removed the slow and bulky attempt of switching between profiles to allow X-Mouse to handle swapping what mouse button is being used depending on the hand position.

Both hands always start in Trigger Mode. This is to prevent uncontrolled mouse and scrolling movement when you do not wish it to happen.

Left Hand:

The default switch mode for the left hand is always an upward swipe (any number of fingers), which in turn controls the scrolling all depending on hand incline while either a single or multi-taps will switch you back to Trigger Mode. Left Hand movement is not used for any functions.

Triggers for the Left hand are mostly blank for your own customization.

Right Hand:

The default mode switch for the right hand is a + Finger Swipe Down. This was intentionally set as the Steering mode is meant to be used with an open hand.

Steering Mode is set to follow general hand movement, instead of finger based, to allow Incline and Taps to work accurately. With a Flat Hand, a Finger Tap is a Left Click, a Thumb Lift allows you to Hold the Left Click, and a Multi Tap allows a Right Click. Tilt the Hand upward (palm towards the monitor) and the Finger Tap is a Middle Click, the Thumb Lift holds the Middle Click for the duration, and a Multi-Tap hits the equivalent of a "Back Browser" button on a mouse. Tilt the Hand downward and the Finger Tap is a Right Click, Thumb Lift holds the Right Click, and the Multi-Tap is a "Forward Browser" button on a mouse.

A quick twist of the palm "outward" (ie your Right palm faces towards your left) will toggle the Sleep/Wake function, for easy re-positioning of the hand. To be honest, the inward incline hasn't been to useful for me, and thus its been left at a Reposition function.

Trigger Mode is setup more for Browser work.

Single Finger Swipe Left and Right will switch between tabs of an internet browser (feel free to reverse these if you wish). Single Finger Circle Left and Right do a single scroll of up and down, for slow scrolling when you don't want to use your left hand.

Two Finger Swipe Left and Right control Browser Back and Forward functions of a keyboard (again, feel free to reverse these if you wish). Two Finger Circle Left and Right hit the Page Up and Page Down for Page "Scrolling" for the right hand.

  • Finger Circle Left and Right controls Closing Tabs and Undo Close Tabs. + Finger Swipe Up controls Windows 8 Application Switching, while Swiping Down controls Mode Switching of GameWAVe. +Finger Swipe Left opens the Windows 8 Charms Menu, and the Swipe Right opens the Start Menu.

Mutli-Tap for the right hand trigger mode has also been altered to activate the Sleep and Wake function of GameWAVE.
