Thanks for the link.
Right now you don't actually need webmidi to do this kind of things.
As a local server on the machine with the browser can stream data through
websocket and the right cross origin policies. Any of you with a Leap
Motion can hook it us to a notebook, and see you hands in 3D in a notebook.
So if any of you want to make a prototype of widget using webMidi, please
feel free to share it.
