LEAP MOTION 3D Motion and Gesture Control for PC & Mac


The Leap Motion Controller senses how you naturally move your hands and lets you use your computer in a whole new way. Point, wave, reach, grab. Pick something up and move it. Do things you never dreamed possible.All that wide open space between you and your Computer.The Leap Motion Controller tracks all 10 fingers up to 1/100th of a millimeter. It's dramatically more sensitive than existing motion control technology. That's how you can draw or paint mini masterpieces inside a one-inch cube.The Leap Motion Controller can track your movements at a rate of over 200 frames per second. That’s how the action on your screen keeps up with your every move.The Leap Motion's object and motion detection system works by using three infrared LEDs to cast a dot pattern extending above and around it. This is then monitored by two infrared cameras on the unit, which can capture 300 frames per second to keep up with fast, fine movements. All the processing of this data is handled by a driver installed on your PC.

The controller's sensors watch a roughly hemispherical area of around 135 degrees above it. Because it's small, it's rather sensitive to how it's positioned. When it came to fine movement, we got the best results with the Leap Motion positioned just in front of our keyboard on a desk that was low enough for us to comfortably prop our elbows on, although a handful of apps required a bit more room to move.

The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver. The hackers got into the account and tweeted a series of things relating to President Obama and the United States being in cahoots with Al-Qaeda . The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now. The Syrian Electronic Army , the same group that hacked 3 of the BBC’s Twitter accounts, claimed

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
