Experiment with Leap Motion

Posted: November 17th, 2012 | Filed under: 02 Labs | No Comments »

A quick prototypes I work with Leap Motion. Leap Motion is a 3d depth camera like Microsoft Kinect. The company is estimating that the leap will ship in early 2013. I am so excited about to get a Leap Motion Dev Board (v.04) in advance. Build with C++ and Cinder.





Experiment I: Spaceship Racer Prototype
This prototype shows that controlling position of camera in 3d space by tracking two hands.






Experiment II: Mesh Builder
This prototype shows that how to add points by tracking fingertips and generate triangle meshes in 3d space by connecting points.



Special thank Robert Hodgin and Andrew Bell for setting Leap Motion SDK up into Cinder app.
