Leap motion is a gesture control system that was originally developed to capture the movement of our hands in a very precise way and thus replace the mouse and keyboard of our computer.
His goal was that we use our computer as if we were in the movie Minority Report. In its technical aspects, Leap Motion is a small device with USB connection, which uses two cameras and three infrared LEDs to track hands and fingers with a maximum range of one meter and a spatial precision of 0.01 millimeters.
The present of Leap Motion
It is currently compatible with the Virtual Reality devices that are on the market, so in a simple way it replaces the robust controls and helps at the user level the learning curve is minimal. Considering that, by using our own hands, the way in which we interact with the application becomes cognitive and we will not have to get used to any external element. Small, efficient and powerful. Leap Motion technology is designed to integrate directly into the next generation of VR / AR headphones. We can’t assure that Leap Motion becomes the new interface within the world of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, but we do recognize it as a great tool to bring more users to experience.
The future of Leap Motion
Imagine creating a cyber-physical space in which from our office (VR) we can move a Robot that is in the physical twin. Besides that the hands of this robot will move totally the same as our own hands thanks to this small and cheap device. But if we talk about a closer future, thanks to this technology any engineer, architect, designer, etc. Can design on site with his own hands.
