Leap Motion Sensor
Leap Motion, Inc. is an American company that manufactures and markets a computer hardware sensor device that supports hand and finger motions as input, analogous to a mouse, but requires no hand contact or touch. It’s not your typical motion sensor, as Leap Motion allows you to scroll the web page, zooms in the map and photos, signs documents and even plays a first person shooter game with only hand and finger movements. The smooth reaction is the most crucial key point here. More importantly, you can own this future with just $70, a price of a premium PS3 game title! If this device works completely with Oculus Rift to simulate a real-time gaming experience, then gaming is going to get a major make-over.
Precisely about accuracy.
The Leap Motion Controller tracks all 10 fingers up to 1/100th of a millimeter. It’s dramatically more sensitive than existing motion control technology. That’s how you can draw or paint mini masterpieces inside a one-inch cube.
It’s all in your reach – and grasp and grip.
It’s a super-wide 150° field of view and a Z-axis for depth. That means you can move your hands in 3D, just like you do in the real world. With Leap Motion apps, you can reach out and grab objects. Move them around. Even change your perspective.
When you move, it moves.
The Leap Motion Controller can track your movements at a rate of over 200 frames per second. That’s how the action on your screen keeps up with your every move.
