We study the new possibilities to gesture interfaces that have emerged with a Leap Motion sensor. The Leap Motion is an innovative, 3D motion capturing device designed especially for hands and fingers tracking with precision up to 0.01mm.
Through this project we explore as many functionalities of the leap motion device. We learn how to interact with objects virtually and attempt to detect collision and modify a 3-D object in OpenGL environment.
The idea is to work on 2 gesture recognition based sensors: kinect and leap motion. The kinect will be used to reconstruct a 3-D scene of an object. The reconstructed scene would be sent to the computer where the user interactively sculpts out the image/scene using hand gestures captured by a leap motion device
