Leap Motion offers a motion controller that allows users to connect the controller to their computers and control the computer by touch. The controller senses the hand and finger motions of the user.
The Leap Motion API allows developers to access and integrate some of the functionality of Leap Motion with other applications and to create new applications. Public documentation is not available; interested developers should sign up here for a developer account: https://www.leapmotion.com/developers.
Of the many APIs we published this week, twelve were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those twelve, which included Google's many newly released APIs. Included in Googles recent releases are the Content Experiments, Cloud SQL API, CalDAV, and the CardDAV APIs. To give a background on each, the CalDAV API allows developers to manage their calendar, the CardDAV to manage contacts, the Content Experiments allowing for Google Analytics to be used for A/B testing, and finally the Cloud SQL API to perform certain tasks for MySQL database. To learn more about these APIs, visit the Google page as well as the Google API blog post.
