HandWAVE tracks your hand and watches for gestures. It is designed to run in the background and is very smart about filtering out unintended movements so that gestures are never accidentally triggered. You can swipe in four directions, perform circles leftwards or rightwards, tilt your hand or make a fist. All these gestures can be tied to commands that will control your computer.

Use it immediately

HandWAVE by default starts with a media control and browsing configuration and includes a beautiful step-by-step tutorial to help you train the supported gestures. Minutes after launching the software, you’ll be changing volume, controlling playback and scrolling your browser content with your hands.

Completely configurable

HandWAVE provides a powerful but intuitive configuration window that allows you to fully customize which commands are triggered by your gestures. These configurations can be saved, reloaded afterwards and even replace the default configuration.

Proven technology

HandWAVE is built on the engine behind GameWAVE, one of the most popular and highest rated applications on the Airspace store.

HandWAVE’s goal is to allow anyone to dive straight into gesture control with a minimal amount of training or configuration. When you want to unleash the full power of your Leap Motion Controller, it’s easy to upgrade to GameWAVE since its approach will feel immediately familiar.
