  4. 4.  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. 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. 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. 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. 8.  Peripheral Sensors Two Global Shutter Image Sensors LEDs Infrared LEDs USB USB3 Controller
  9. 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 API’s for common gestures for rapid prototyping
  10. 10.  Airspace Store  Leap Motion has an app store called Airspace where it sells apps made by developers  Airspace is the Leap Motion’s 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 18.  Leap changing the world
