Introduction to leap motion technology Leap Motion is a computer hardware sensor device that supports hand and finger motions as input, analogous to a mouse, but requiring no hand contact or touching. It is a miracle in computer interaction field. It is a breakthrough in computer interaction using a patented mathematical approach to 3D,touch free motion sensing and motion control software. Say good bye to mouse and keyboard. Its more accurate than mouse and keyboard 5. History of leap motion Leap Motion is founded by Michael Buckwald & David Holtz in 2010 at San Francisco. Leap Motion publicly announced its first product, originally called The Leap, on May 21, 2012 for $30. The device started full-scale shipping in July 2013. 6. What is leap motion technology? Use an array of infrared sensors, Motion detecting algorithm is the secret, Consumes only 1-2% of the central processing unit (C.P.U.),Does not require the use of a graphics processing unit The Leap Motion controller is a small USB peripheral device which is designed to be placed on a physical desktop, facing upward. Using two monochromatic cameras and three infrared LEDs, the device observes a roughly hemispherical area, to a distance of about 1 meter (3 feet). The LEDs generate a 3D pattern of dots of IR light and the cameras generate almost 300 frames per second of reflected data, which is then sent through a USB cable to the host computer, where it is analyzed by the Leap Motion controller software using "complex math 7. Basic Three Components Of Leap Motion Technology Peripheral Leap Motion Controller USB Connection to Computing Device SDK/Drivers Leap Motion Software Ground-breaking algorithms Airspace (App Store) Third-party applications, developer relations Consumer & Business focused applications 8. Peripheral Sensors Two Global Shutter Image Sensors LEDs Infrared LEDs USB USB3 Controller 9. SDK/Drivers Runs on Windows, MAC and Linux Environments Supports development in C#, C++, Objective C, Java, Python & JavaScript and more Supported by rich developer community portal Contains APIs for common gestures for rapid prototyping 10. Airspace Store Leap Motion has an app store called Airspace where it sells apps made by developers Airspace is the Leap Motions app store (airspace.leapmotion.com) You will need to create an Airspace account Not all apps are multi-platform There are a lot of free apps, but most cost $2 - $5 Apps include: Autodesk Maya plugin, Fruit Ninja, Google Earth, and The New York Times Apps in every category: Games, Music, Design, Productivity, Education, Science and more 11. H/W and S/W Specifications Hardware Intel i3 / i5 / i7 Processor 2 GB RAM USB 2.0 PORT Software Windows 7 or 8 MAC OS X 10.6 12. Activation & First Use Plug in the Leap and place it in a comfortable position in front of your computer screen Go to leapmotion.com/setup to download the drivers and the Leap control panel (available for Windows and Mac) After installation, the Leap Motion Orientation will run 13. Advantages of leap motion Accurate 100x more accurate than anything on the market 1/100th mm tip of a pin accuracy Powerful no visible latency real time interaction experience, precise hand and finger movements 14. Advantages of leap motion Embeddable small form factor, low z-height, low CPU and power consumption Content-rich Airspace App Store with over 60k app developers across wide range of categories 15. Other Advantages of leap motion It Can track movements at a rate of over 200 frames per second Plug and play (via USB) 200 times more sensitive than existing touch-free technologies (kinect) Affordable & inexpensive 16. Application Area Of Leap Motion Education Interactive Displays in classroom Integration with curriculum Applications for special needs UI Research for industries Healthcare Access to data & images with sterility Information access in public areas Progress/Regression measurement Patient room control 17. Application Area Of Leap Motion Data Visualization Complex data navigation Trend & Correlation identification Decision efficiencies Data sharing & collaboration Art & Design More Intuitive 3D interface Greater accuracy and responsiveness Offers better designing as compare to mouse 18.
