WINGED is a research project which examines a new way of interacting with window based desktop operating systems. In contrast to the common mouse focused interaction concepts, WINGED offers a motion based system providing intuitive gestures to the users. Due to the higher degree of freedom compared to a mouse, extended interaction possibilities offer a topic for further research. For our proof-of-concept implementation a Leap Motion controller is used to capture the hand movement with infrared sensors. Furthermore a desktop environment mockup, created in java-processing 3.0, is used to give visual feedback to the user.
