Our resident maker, Danny, demonstrates how to combine the futuristic motion technology of Leap Motion with the power of SmartThings to control any number of lights, electronics, and gadgets in your home or office.
Oh, and the best part? Anyone who has SmartThings, Leap Motion can start playing with this integration right now! Just go to SmartThings Labs and follow the simple instructions to hook up your things.

How is the Hue light being controlled, IFTTT?
The Hue bridge can be accessed locally through REST HTTP calls. But Hue integration can be taken much further, including color changes and dimming – you might want to check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czq3S13tGVk.
We have direct control of the Hue bulb with SmartThings.
And I should note that the Local LAN connection between SmartThings and Hue is not yet public but being released soon.
Ahhhhh, dare you use technology not publically available! Man I have been waiting for this piece of integration for some time! How will we know when it is released will the ST application just have a new icon?
We’ll announce it – it seems you stay pretty up to date, but be sure to follow us on Facebook, sign up for our mailing list (from the SmartThings homepage), and of course, this blog!
One other question. When the ST control of the Hue light is finally released will the ST hub be speaking directly to the lights? Or ST Hub > Hue Hub > hue lights? I’m trying to determine if I can get rid of this Philips Hue hub.
SmartThings Lab link no longer works, any chance of getting an updated link for how to set this up?
