In this project, we created a Virtual Piano playing experience with the help of Leap motion. We used a Leap Motion hand gesture recognition sensor for accurately tracking the fingers and appropriate hand gestures. We were able to successfully implement finger tracking to press the keys of the piano. The demo currently works better as a prop as opposed to a real piano, though future improvements could lead to a more authentic playing experience.
