A software company out of Israel has come up with a gesture controller that offers a seamless way to control 3D objects on your computer, like Google Earth, with your existing webcam.
Although there are already a few strong players in the emerging gesture control market, a new development could quickly leapfrog them all by harnessing everyday Wi-FI.
The developers at Leap Motion have uploaded a new demo that harnesses the power and beauty of Google Earth.
Leap Motion has announced a deal with major PC maker HP that will embed the gesture control technology inside some of its leading products.
The Leap Motion gesture interface device promises to change the way we interact with computers, but a new hack shows how the device might also work as a controller for real world devices.
Leap Motion generated a lot of buzz around its gestured-based controller, but the potentially groundbreaking device has been without an official release date, until now.
Here at SIGGRAPH 2012, we got our first look at the Edge3 Technologies 3D tracking and gesture recognition system. It's sort of like Kinect or Leap, except definitely better than the former and arguably better than the latter. We were impressed, and we'll tell you why it could enable new interfaces for the next-generation of devices.
Startup Leap Motion wasn't kidding when it said that it had a tiny peripheral that could read gestures "200 times more accurate than anything else on the market." We caught up with the Leap to see if it really is a mouse and keyboard killer.
The Kinect gesture control system wowed everyone when it was first announced three years ago, but now a San Francisco startup called Leap Motion has a new system that promises to make Microsoft's effort look crude.
The next time you see someone acting out scenes from Minority Report in their car, don't assume that they're just a huge Tom Cruise fan, they could be simply using the gesture controlled interface in their new Mercedes-Benz.
