The 3D Leap Motion Controller Review
When I heard all the buzz and excitement about the Leap Motion Controller and so I eagerly bought one when I saw it offered at a good price online. I’ve been so delighted and amazed with the product that I decided to write my own Leap Motion Controller Review. Similar to a Kinect, the controller is an input device that uses 3D spatial tracking. With just the motion of your hand or body, you can play games and have fun with dozens of compatible apps. The Leap Motion Controller review that I read stated that the device works on both Mac and Windows PCs, so compatiblity should never be an issue.The controller is so small that it will fit in the palm of your hand, but this little gadget packs a powerful punch. Using USB connectivity, it quickly identifies and installs on your home system. Using breakthrough kinetic sensing technology, the Leap controller is accurate up to 1/100th of a millimeter, and tracks not just the movement of your hands but also all 10 fingers, including the joints.My Leap Motion Controller review wouldn’t feel complete without gushing about the feeling of being in a science fiction movie as you turn and move your hand to manipulate items on the screen. The controller has a sensor that encompasses about 8 cubic feet, plenty of room to detect the finer movements of both hands. Three infrared sensors and two cameras work together to track the 3D motion of your gestures.The Leap controller is housed in a stylish, attractive black rectangular box encased in a sleek brushed aluminum shell. A rubberized base provides secure footing for your controller, and a helpful small, green LED light indicates when the unit is plugged in. The first time that you use the controller, you will be shown an orientation tutorial that will help you calibrate the tracking of your fingers and hands. There’s nothing quite so cool as seeing the subtle movements of wagging your fingers represented in real time on the screen.The Leap Motion device is best with apps and games found on the Airspace Store, which will load after you have completed the tutorial. Games and apps from other sources have also been modified to operate with the controller, such as Google Maps. The vast majority of offerings on the Airspace Store are free, and there are plenty of games and fun apps to choose from. I had a lot of fun playing Flocking, a game where your fingers are transformed into lights that you use to attract fish.If you’re looking for the ultimate in kinetic sensing technology for use on your home computer, I highly recommend the Leap Motion Controller.
