An Iron Man Like 3d Hologram Controlled by Leap Motion and Three.js

The Leap Motion is a very cool piece of technology.  It’s a small $80 box that you can put on your desk to control an ordinary computer using hand motions.  It’s extremely accurate, allowing for very fine motor control using all of your fingers. This amazing video demo shows a Leap Motion controlling a Three.js rendered 3d hologram of the earth.  It is projected on a 4-sided prism, and while it’s not quite as good as what Tony Stark has in Iron Man, it’s still pretty darn cool.  And it’s controlled by JavaScript!
