Our team put together one of the only projects that was actually usable by the end of the competition.
Most of the other teams ran into technical difficulties that they could not resolve. When it came time for the demos, some instruments malfunctioned or performed differently than expected. Our project was unique in that we built our entire instrument from scratch. Another team, for example, put theirs together using parts from an existing electric guitar. Also, our instrument was built to do more than just play sounds. The Leap Motion allows users to manipulate the lights and visual effects inside a performance space.
