This week Leap Motion has unveiled their new next-generation Version 2 Leap Motion API tracking software which is now available as a beta development release and is available to download for free.
The previous version of the Leap Motion gesture controller software was sometimes a little erratic when trying to sense where a user’s fingers were positioned. However the latest Leap Motion V2 API software is now able to track individual joints within user’s hands and fingers.
Providing a much more accurate gesture control system that is capable of keeping track of a users individual digits as well as enhancing the system’s ability to be used in sunlight and reduce infrared interference. Leap CEO Michael Buckwald explains a little more about the new next-generation Version 2 API software they have created for their Leap Motion gesture control interface :
“V1 is a great experience for early adopters,”-“But what we want to do with V2 is make interacting with the computer the same as interacting with the physical world.”
Watch the video below to see just how accurately the new V2 Leap Motion is able to track the users fingers as well as their individual movement. For more information on the new Leap Motion V2 jump over to the Leap Motion developer website for details.
“Version 2.0 of the Leap Motion API introduces a new skeletal tracking model – featuring additional information about hands and fingers. More robust hand tracking continues to provide data even when hands are partially occluded”
