A finger controlled follow spot

Leap Motion as interface to control a follow light on a stage – just by pointing onto the object.


A simple way to control a moving head with a finger to be used as a follow spot…

Hand skeleton is captured by Leap Motion sensor and sent to Max6 via LeapToOSC.
Max6 scales signal and creates DMX frames which are sent over ArtNet to a Martin Mac600 moving head through an Enttec Open DMX Ethernet box.
A Korg NanoControl is used to control other parameters (like dimmer or colors).

Special thanks to Mano BOURCART and Alexandre GOUJON who helped me to setup this experiment.
