Finger movements closely related to cognitive training have been found effective on preventing dementia. Dementia in aged people has been rapidly growing nowadays, which has to come with increase of medical cost to treat it. In this paper, we propose dementia-prevention techniques that can be useful in a serious game using a leap motion controller. To this end, we associate finger motions with particle movements as well as object deformation when interacting with a leap controller. This approach can be utilized in a serious game whereas currently most serious games seem to provide just touch interface for the treatment of dementia. Finally, we have shown experimental results as well.
