Around the World

Take a tour around the universe through manipulation of your hands.

Zain Majid


The Leap Motion Controller is a world-class tracking module that uses your hands to move around on the screen. My project takes the user around the world through the manipulation of my very hands. Had this been in person, it would have allowed the user to use their own hands to travel wherever they would like to go.

The first half of the video takes the user through the universe via an application called Exoplanet. Shortly thereafter, they are taken around the world to admire the wonders of the world as shot by Google Earth. All edits were completed in Adobe Premiere Pro, using visual effects and manipulations learned in my Live Video Performance Arts Class with Professor Max Nova.
