Leap - Alternative to TrackIR?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I read up on this yesterday, and it could be quite good for simulation. It's not intended as a replacement of a mouse or keyboard.

 

it demonstrates in 2 games, how it can be used, and it could have face recognition. If it will, would it make it better than TrackIR?

 

Video demonstrating it here:

 

It's not out until Q4 2012, so we have ages to wait, but It would be really cool, considering it's the size of a flash drive/pen drive!!

 

What do you think about this?

currently, Facetracknoir (freeware) does face tracking already. All you need is a quality webcam. It is quite good although I think that trackir is a bit more responsive and fluent.

 

If this Leap thing works as advertised it might be a great tool for FSX, we could finally really flick switches in our Virtual Cockpits. The problem is that things rarely work as advertised...


Cheers🍻,
