Browse the Leap Motion with the Leap Motion!

Back to overview

Leap Motion just released the leap, an amazing 3D motion control device. After our initial hack with Facebook home, we worked on adding Leap Motion support to Sketchfab, and it’s finally ready!


Once you have installed the Leap Motion software, you can browse and interact with any Sketchfab model with your hands! Here are the controls:

  • point one finger and turn left or right to rotate the model
  • point two separate fingers and turn right or left to pan the model
  • point your open hand and move up and down to zoom in or out.

Here is a video demo, with our CEO Alban making a demo at Siggraph:

And if you want to try the ultimate experience of browsing the leap with the leap, here is a 3D model of the device and its box!
