Moon Rover is a web application which lets users explore the surface of the moon using a Leap Motion controller for hand-based navigation. The app is supported by Cesium.js, a javascript WebGL library for rendering the moon, and websockets for transmitting the Leap hand-tracking data to the app.

This project is solving the Tour of the Moon challenge.


The aim of this application is to give users a more intuitive and tactile way of looking at the moon. The Leap Motion sensor provides a gestural interface to navigating the moon and viewing its surface features and locations of previous NASA moon landings.

If you have a Leap Motion sensor, you can run the program and view the moon here: [HTML_REMOVED][HTML_REMOVED]
