Leap Motion V2 Tracking

From Leap Motion's developer blog:

V2 retains the speed and positional accuracy found in V1, but the software also now tracks the actual joints and bones inside each of the user’s fingers. This leads to some immediate benefits over V1:

  • Finger and hand labels – every finger, hand, and joint now has anatomical labels like ‘pinky’, ‘left hand’, and ‘proximal phalanges’
  • Occlusion robustness – fingers are tracked even when they’re not seen by the controller, as might happen if you turned your hands completely vertically or intertwined the fingers of your left and right hands
  • Massively improved resistance to ambient infrared light – sunlight, powerful halogens, etc.
  • Much more granular data for developers about the user’s hands and fingers – 27 dimensions per hand, in addition to special parameters like grab/pinch APIs

The VSTx is an ultra small, low power, SD, COFDM, video/audio/data transmitter. It has standard selectable modulation bandwidths of 6, 7 and 8 MHz or optional 1.25 MHz or 2.5 MHz narrow bandwidth COFDM (NBCOFDM) modes. The VSTx features superb H.264 SD encoding and operates in the standard 2k DVB-T COFDM mode. The VSTx is available with two connector options. The first model features standard connectors for simple interfacing in the field. The VSTx can easily be used by agents in the field for body worn video wires and other applications. The second model features a small flex ribbon interface cable that is ideal for integration with cameras in very small, hidden locations. The SRx features AES decryption capabilities, making it ideal for public security monitoring, covert surveillance, and other secure transmission applications. The VSTx will transmit images in a line of site environment for more than 200 meters. Further range can be achieved, depending on mode, frequency, power setting and choice of antenna.
