Reach your potential
Leap Motion Controller
Small. Fast. Accurate. World-class hand tracking for anyone, anywhere. Ultraleap’s optical hand tracking module captures the movements of your hands with unparalleled accuracy and near-zero latency.
Meet your digital hands
Here’s how Ultraleap makes them feel real.
1. Unrivalled software
Your hands are intricate and nuanced. Our software is too.
Our hand tracking software captures all the subtlety and complexity of natural hand movements. It’s based on a decade of development and iteration, three generations of research in artificial intelligence and the feedback of hundreds of thousands of developers.
Fast, robust, accurate, and works on almost any computer.
It starts with a simple sensor that detects your hands.
There’s no secret to the hardware. Ultraleap’s Leap Motion Controller uses two image sensors plus infrared LEDs.
Simple, but powerful and fast.
The LEDs illuminate your hands with infrared light. You can’t see it, but our sensors can. The LEDs pulse over 100 times a second, for less than a thousandth of a second each time. Every time they do this the sensors send data back to the computer to track your hands.
4. Skeletal tracking
This is just the start. The real magic is in our skeletal tracking.
Our software uses the images to generate a virtual model of your hand movements. We model not just your palm or fingertips, but the joints and bones inside your hand. This means we can accurately guess the position of a finger or thumb, even if it’s hidden from view.
5. Interaction Engine
… and our Interaction Engine.
The virtual models of your hand movements are fed into the Ultraleap Interaction Engine. The Interaction Engine provides a unified physical interaction paradigm. Grabbing, swiping, pushing, pinching … they all become as effortless as they are in the real world.
6. Real-time interaction
The world’s leading hand tracking.
Our software makes digital interaction human.
It’s so fast, so smooth, they’re just … your hands.
