2. Hack: LeapPlay

This application grabs a list of songs, e.g. from your playlist or a service like SoundCloud. Each song's title is ran through a text-to-speech (tts) engine and becomes a sound source positioned in 3D space (JOAL, OpenAL Java wrapper). You can scroll through the list by using either a mouse, touchpad or LEAP motion controller. The song's title will be read to you when you point at it. If you want to listen to the song you can select it by either clicking the mouse of performing the "select" gesture on the LEAP. The prototype supports selecting and playing multiple songs simultaneously.

This is intended to be a non-visual interface. You can use it just by listening to it and interacting with the LEAP.

Done at the Berlin Geekettes Hackathon.
