[PowerPoint]How about a workaround for now

PowerPoint - For Previous/Next Slide in presentation:
I tried the "Three-Finger Flick" feature with the Synaptics TouchPad on my laptop. It works well in PowerPoint Slide Show mode.
  1. sliding my fingers to the right = next slide
  2. sliding my fingers to the left = previou slide
  3. sliding my fingers upwards = launch the slide show mode
  4. sliding my fingers downwards = exit the slide show mode.
How about linking those gestures to swipes right, left, up and down with Leap Motion controller? e.g.
Right Swipe => call Three-Finger sliding right => next slide

Maybe not an effient way, but it may work with Synaptics SDK, Leap Motion SDK and C++.

"Three-Finger Flick

The Three-Finger-Flick gesture enhances navigation for a variety of applications. You can use the Three-Finger-Flick gesture for browsing the Internet or scrolling through photos in a photo viewer window. You can also use the Three-Finger-Flick gesture to enter or exit slideshow mode.

To enable this feature, select the Enable Three-Finger Flick check box.

To use the Three-Finger-Flick gesture for navigation:
  1. Place three fingers, slightly separated, down on the TouchPad surface.
  2. Flick your fingers in a linear, continuous motion in the desired direction, moving from one side of the TouchPad to the opposite side.
  3. Horizontal finger motion, sliding your fingers to the right or left will page forwards or backwards in a photo viewer or an Internet browser window.
To use the Three-Finger-Flick gesture for slideshow mode, slide your fingers vertically. Slide your fingers upwards to launch slideshow mode. Slide your fingers downwards to exit slideshow mode."

Cheers!

No. On Synaptics TouchPad:
sliding my fingers to the right = next slide
sliding my fingers to the left = previou slide

Is it possible do this with LEAP MOTION:
Right Swipe => invoke Three-Finger sliding right => next slide

On Samsung Galaxy S4, there already has Air Gesture to do that, I think.

Cheers!
