This week at CES, Mercedes-Benz unveiled their latest concept car with technology plucked from the pages of science fiction – including one of our latest prototypes. Embedded into the console, Leap Motion’s Meadowhawk modules allow drivers to access an experimental natural user interface. Visitors at CES can also see Leap Motion technology featured in a demo by Hyundai, as well as a standalone demo that our team is bringing to the showcase. While these are early concept demos, we’re excited to drive the future of touchless interaction in 2015.
This weekend, we saw 50+ early submissions to the Leap Motion 3D Jam! To celebrate the milestone, we’re hosting a live Let’s Play tomorrow at 4pm PST on Twitch TV – where you can join developers, gamers, and tech lovers to offer your commentary on these early contenders for jam supremacy.
It’s no secret that for many developers in our community, midnight is the hour when the hacking gets good. Late last Friday night, over 1,000 undergraduates from across the country poured into California Memorial Stadium for Cal Hacks, a 36-hour coding spree put on by Major League Hacking. Sponsors ranging from tech’s biggest players to […]
Rio de Janeiro’s fourth annual ArtRio Festival overtook Pier Mauá last week. Fifty thousand visitors wandered through over 100 different galleries, taking in world-renowned works right alongside pieces from up-and-coming names. True to Brazil’s flair for the evocative, however, festivalgoers could not only consume art, but create it themselves – designing their very own Heineken […]
From gaming to big data, virtual reality gives us the chance to build and explore whole new worlds beyond the screen. As we developed demos and prototypes with the Oculus Rift internally, several UX insights sprung forth. Now that many of you have received your VR Developer Mounts, we thought we’d share.
The Leap Motion Controller doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Across fiction, gaming, and art, we can see a rich history of motion control concepts and devices, and understanding what makes them successful is hugely important to building the next generation of real-world interfaces. In this two-part video, we look at some of the most compelling […]
Digital technologies in the operating room can be powerful tools for surgeons, but only as long as they can be controlled without compromising sterile procedures. In the last of our AXLR8R spotlight videos, DriftCoast co-founder Hua (Michael) Chen talks about how he was inspired to use Leap Motion technology to open up new interactive possibilities within the OR. Their […]
The Internet of Things is different things to different people. In recent posts on Leap Motion’s Developer Labs, we’ve seen how the Leap Motion device can open up new interaction models in smart environments. To exist within the Internet of Things – to network with other devices in a smart ecosystem on a machine-to-machine (M2M) […]
Imagine a fully interactive augmented reality – an extra layer on top of our world that we can see, grab, and control. At the LEAP.AXLR8R, GetVu is exploring the boundaries of augmented reality with a platform that combines computer vision with human vision in a wearable device. With Leap Motion interaction, they envision a future […]
