Leap Motion’s next sensor is designed specifically for virtual reality

– People were cooling off for a good cause Wednesday night in Bern Township. A group gathered together in front of the “Berks Green Monster” at the Youth Recreation Facility to take the Ice Bucket Challenge. Dan Clouser, president of the Big Vision Foundation, invited everyone to come out and take the challenge in a video he posted online.

Search Intensifies For Solitary Pilot Of The Military Jet That Crashed In Virginia, Still No Contact, Fate Unknown

The city’s Alamo Plaza Advisory Committee , which is developing a vision and planning principles for the area, heard from well over 100 people at a public meeting at the Convention Center. Some said interpretation of events during the Texas Revolution should not overshadow the site’s early origins as the Mission of the San Antonio de Valero.

Confirming the intensification of the search for the missing pilot, Colonel James Keefe, the 104th Fighter Wing Commander said, At this time we have not had contact with the pilot. However, he was quick to point out that the unidentified officer was quite experienced in the art of flying high-speed jets and that he has been well trained in the art of survival techniques too, He is well-trained to survive. It is a traumatic event for everyone here. We are thinking about the family. Why was an experienced pilot flying a jet meant for training?

Passions stirred at Alamo meeting – San Antonio Express-News

The software demo itself contained very little (just a collection of floating objects that wafted around in reaction to my waving arms), but the potential was obvious. Still, the novelty of the infrared image would make a poor augmented reality experience, which is why Leap is looking to the future: a new motion sensor it calls Dragonfly. Dragonfly is similar to it existing sensor, but outfitted with high definition RGB / infrared combo cameras. Buckwald strapped me into a prototype unit, and the difference was immediately apparent: the new sensor had the same ten finger tracking, first person hand tracking, but now in full color. That sensor too, has tons of potential, but you won’t be able to buy one. “This is not something we’re selling,” Buckwald explains, “but something we’re demoing to OEMs to embed in VR devices.” It’s not a product itself, but a potential part of a future product.
