Leap Copter

Presented by Nick Nisi

Nick combined aspects of the other two presentations at NebraskaJS January 2014 (Leap Motion and a nodecopter) to demo flying a Parrot AR.Drone using the Leap Motion interactive controller.

One of the really impressive pieces of this presentation was that Nick used Node-DroneStream which uses Broadway.js (a JavaScript H.264 decoder) to decode a live video stream from the Drone. This created a really fluid video.
