This code allows you to create a Reveal.js presentation, controlled by hand motions through a LeapMotion device. Using SendGrid, you can conduct a live voting session where votes are cast via email and updated in real-time using express, and Highcharts.js. If you have Google Glass, you can get a teleprompter that displays your slide notes as you go through each slide.

View a video demo of the final product to get a feel for the completed project. The video is less than 5 minutes.

There is a companion blog post at SendGrid's blog.


This software was tested on a Macbook Pro Retina and a Macbook Air, both running Yosemite. If you test on Linux or Windows, please let me know the results.

  • check your email inbox for an email from Say hi :)
  • check your DB and verify the new entry
  • modify the slides at views/index.html and keep your assets in the /public folder
