Using leap to move non computers?

    So I had this crazy idea of putting a wall safe behind a painting/over sized picture, is there any way I could implement something in the frame that I could make leap slide the picture with the flick of Leap? Keep in mind I'm about as computer savvy as a 75 year old, any advice is appreciated.

    However un-savvy you are I've got to be worse, I don't even know what leap is blood. I googled it and saw some bus company for SF yuppies.

    Leap is this type of thing where this pad looking thing captures your hand movements and converts those movements to a computer screen, think of how a demon can just move his hand and people go flying across the room sorta thing. Basically the same thing here only you're hand is over a pad and it's computer commands instead.

    Never heard of it either. You'd have to use a computer and link a specific motion with something that controls a motor to slide the picture. Arduino comes to mind for this (the motor control), not sure if it's really the best tool for the job. I bet the leap device costs way more money than it's worth to utilize for this one specific task.

    ^ It's relatively cheap, like $70 U.S. (it's made in Europe) I'm not sure if that makes any difference as it seems to be compatible with windows 8+ products. I've seen 50/50 mixed reviews on it. Half of the people say "oh wow great" and the other half complains it's a pain/flat out doesn't work. You how it goes in the computer world though, some people just want a one step and go and don't want to put in any effort into it. This would take some moderate physical and mental effort, but I honestly don't know where to start. I tired googling everything I could think of and didn't get anything remotely geared toward this subject, thanks for the recommendation, I'll look into the Arduino thing. Also it's sort of a novelty thing I'd use it for and not really for practical use.

    This is a sign that the product is shit.
