The future is getting closer, all major tech companies are launching new VR headsets and VR content every day. One great thing about VR headsets is that it gives users a gaming experience like they’ve never felt before, they actually get a chance to step into the game’s characters footsteps, thus making the world way more immersive. Taking in consideration that the demand for VR content and VR headsets is pretty big, all major players are trying to swoop in on the tech market and grab customer’s attention with new VR features.
The only company that seems to be improving and creating innovative VR features is Leap Motion. What makes Leap Motion stand out from the rest is that their phone base VR headsets will allow for hand motion tracking. Leap Motion’s technology will use the device’s cameras to detect finger motion thus allowing the user to control what’s happening in the VR world only by using his hands.
This comes as no surprise since Leap Motion was experimenting with VR motion tracking for a while now. When the company started, they only released desktop compatible technology, but now that VR mobile device are all the rage they switched their focus. The motion tracking sensor has 360 degree field of view and will be incorporated into the headset. The sensors will be strategically positioned at a downwards angle so that they can focus on the user’s hands. The biggest problem Leap Motion has encountered while creating this technology is that they couldn’t figure out how cancel accidental commands like when the user moved his hands out of the sensors range. We can expect the company to keep on improving their technology and as time passes we will get access to more advanced VR headsets.
