The team at Leap Motion have released their new driver to power the current Leap Motion hand gesture devices. The driver is called Orion. The team have done an amazing job in providing the most low latent hand gesture controller driver yet. Contrast to the previous drivers which required extensive calibration, this particular driver update, even though it recommends calibration, did not require it and still gave the most amazing performance. Orion is only available on the windows platform. Leap Motion has certainly improved. After a few simple configuration steps, our Leap Motion is faster, stronger, more accurate.
Post configuration we attempted the ” Blocks ” application which was developed on Orion. The possibilities as a eResearch related tool are endless when you combined with the Leap Motion and Oculus Rift.
