Motion Controller Replaces Keyboard Strokes - Innovate New Albany | New Albany, Ohio

Motion Controller Replaces Keyboard Strokes

It’s just three inches long, but the Leap Motion Controller, a new natural user interface that is 200 times more accurate than earlier controllers, can distinguish each of your fingers and track their movement to a 1/100th of a millimeter. The device creates eight cubic feet of interactive, three-dimensional space that MIT Technology Review calls “The most important new technology since the smart phone” and Popular Mechanic dubs the “2013 Breakthrough Technology of the Year.”



The controller won’t just improve your score on Fruit Ninja or other games. You can browse the web or flip through articles by barely lifting a finger. You can sculpt, mold or build 3D objects. Unlike other systems that rely on some form of sign language, the Leap controller senses and interprets natural hand movements like pointing, waving, reaching and grabbing.
