Breathing Room is a hypertext narrative that makes it possible for readers to interact with the story by gesturing over the Leap Motion controller. Actions such as waving and swiping cause the wind to blow through the leaves of a tree in the 3D environment. "Each movement triggers the sound of a breath, as if you're inhaling and exhaling for the world. Panel layouts are completely dynamic (powered by the Panoply engine), and accompanied by optional captions which unfold a story in different ways each time you play" (Loyer, "Breathing Room").
