A new demo from Leap Motion shows that table tennis in mixed reality could be a lot of fun -- you never have to pick up the ball, for starters. But its greatest potential may be in teaching players how to improve against A.I. opponents.
Leap Motion revealed a new prototype headset combining hand tracking with augmented reality. The open source community will have access next week after a few refinements. Leap Motion wants to add even more tech in the future.
The Leap Motion is now the most supported motion controller for Virtual Reality, as with its newly released mounting system, it's compatible with both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, as well as OSVR platforms and other unnamed headsets.
HP's Leap Motion keyboard featuring built-in gesture control is about to go on sale as a standalone product for $99. Up to now the keyboard could only be obtained through the purchase of certain HP desktop computers.
Leap Motion's 3D gesture control system has already made its debut on a laptop, and now according to the company's CEO, we may have less than a year to wait before it arrives on smartphones and tablets.
With Leap Motion's sensor embedded in the laptop, it's easier to see the possibilities for gesture-based control. Just lift up your hand to move the cursor or flick a webpage up or down, then go right back to typing.
Offering up a gesture control experience somewhat similar to the Microsoft Kinect on the Xbox 360 and upcoming Xbox One, a Leap Motion sensor has been embedded within a special edition of the HP ENVY 17 laptop.
Leap Motion, the company behind the Leap 3D gesture controller, originally stated that pre-orders would begin shipping on May 13, but now CEO Michael Buckwald says the Leap will be delayed until July 22.
