SoTechie Hackathon - Spring Session
Leap Motion has captured a lot of attention. The Leap Motion Controller is the beginning, but there’s a lot more stuff on the way. We’re already working to extend 3D motion control into many other digital devices, and embed our technology in products from the ground up. The potential of the Leap Motion Controller is huge for developers. It’s a chance to do something that never could’ve been done before. The time has come to show it in action and how to develop with Leap Motion into your applications TODAY!!! The goal for this Hackathon is to foster a lively and engaging community for App developers into the Tech of Leap Motion. 36 hours coding your App to use the Leap Motion controller and build original applications based on it. That's the SoTechie Hackathon NYC!!!! Entertainment during the Hackathon: Movies, DJs, Video Games... AND MORE
