What we really need for this game is the ability to "grasp" the protein with two virtual hands and push, pull, and shape the protein the way we want... not to freeze some segments, hit the (truly random) rebuild button, and HOPE it kicks out something useful.

I can see exactly what I need to do to fold a protein how I want it. But with the tools currently available, I can only approximate what I want to achieve. It is sort of like trying to un-knot a long rope that is buried inside a bag... while wearing boxing gloves. Awkward at best, impossible at worst.

With Leap being shipped RIGHT NOW, when can we expect to see Foldit for Leap?

Thanks again for a great game.

My Leap arrives on Wednesday... really hoping that the Foldit for Leap software is ready to go!

I got my Leap Motion today...

It's much fun! I hope that the foldit software is released ASAP - once the software is in the Airspace "store" I suspect we will get a lot of new players.

Wow, after two hours of playing with the new Leap device, I can use it to navigate win7 like a mouse just somewhat slower at this time.

Wow - you waited this long, and have a mouse device that is slower to use, and you have to wave your arms around to use? What happens when you arms get tired?

:) :) :)

Hey bertro,

Do you wanna try out the Foldit Hand using your Leap? I can share the current build with you. Please PM me along with your email address. Thanks!

Best,

Is the LeapMotion support built-in in the current Foldit binaries? Don't see any option to enable the LM.

No, it will be a standalone release for now. I'm currently preparing a next gen version of it.
