This is the one thing that is going to complete my 3Dvidwall into perfection. I was looking into kinetic for pc's and was not impressed by what I could find on the tubes. Thïs is exactly how the interface should work. Gonna mail the tubes to my supplier. They might get me one of those devkits.

Thanx for thread. very useful.

Computer technology is no your friend. The more you use it, the more it just enslaves you to the system.

You should should unplug that message to make it anywhere near believable. Go door by door, flyer the country, televize it, but on a website...

Really?

Probably the reason why Apple is meeting Samsung (and soon to follow other manifacturers) in court for using their patents.

Cool technology and reminds me of a little green man in his ufo manipulating his navigation screens.

Awesome thread, checked the Leap out like a month ago... and still me thinks awesomeness!!


Now imagine combining with the Oculus RIFT, or a consumer friendly derivative expected in the next 12 months:



Oculus Rift

Immersive VR Part 1

Immersive VR Part 2



I'm an architectural designer with a sculpting background and the potential to model my buildings as I would sculpt is one of the most exciting ... damn that's cool!! Second life might even get renewed interest no? Wii with no remote or lousy TV... new interactive porn productions.. Internet browsers in 3D space... why haven't we got that already, anyway..

And how is - staying on topic - having this gadget going to chip my ass exactly? You realize that you, using computers to spout this off-topic message, is a teeny weeny bit ironic?

To ease your mind, I wont insert it where it wasn't meant to be inserted. Happy?

I understand your point of view but i believe u will not be able to create your buildings with this, well at least like you do in 3d packages.
this would be awesome for packages like zbrush and mudbox well because you sculpt your way into the geometry, but for architectural purposes or even lets say build a vehicle, would be an "horryfying" experience welding vertices chamfering edges or even do a simple "boolean".
But maybe im wrong and it would be possible to migrate to this type of platform, most designers/artists would be kinda worried on how to work with it and wouldnt be faster the other way around instead having a cool looking gadget.
One thing is for sure would be awesome for a 3d viewing standing point, for showcasing the project to your client!

If itt uses a camera that is always on, no thanks. I do think its pretty cool though.

Speaking of Quantum Leaps, i just got this device , and have begun playing with it, this is the REAL future ??

emotiv.com...

I have had great success with the first few applications, cannot wait to see this developed further, kind of scary really



www.youtube.com...


Fantastic stuff, good for practicing my telepathy, that apparently "does not exist" according to most people, very easy to control i have found.

Interesting but I wouldn't want to use it. You'd be better off using some kind of tablet type device that will take the weight of your arm as no one wants to hold their hands up in the air for extended periods of time. Use over extended periods would get tiring at the very least, and potentially damaging from an RSI perspective.

Nice idea, but completely impractical.



You're right.

I have a touch screen pc, got it a few years ago and I only ever use the touch function when the batteries die in my mouse.
One thing that is majorly annoying is you can't use in summer months because of bugs. I mean insects, they fly near the screen and wipe out what you just typed or hit send, delete, etc. I've been awoken from a good nights sleep from music blasting from an insect setting it off. This morning I went back to my pc to carry on with a project I was working on and it had restarted itself. A moth did it actually. I lost all my work.

My touch screen tablet has not encountered the insect issue yet. My tablet has to be touched but this pc is more sensitive and you only need to be an inch away, so bugs just need to fly past it

My screen doesn't pinch to zoom out like a tablet though, but you can draw.

As you said you get tired holding your arms up. The novelty of the touchscreen wore off within a few days.
When other people use my computer they automatically point their finger at the screen to show you something and you have to keep saying whatever you do don't touch the screen. They do though and you're having to fix whatever they accidentally touched.

I've got RSI from laptop touchpad as well as traditional mouse and keyboard use. Those motions aren't good for your wrists, either.

Sorry mate but that's on you, not the moth. Have you considered getting a mosquito net around your setup?

No it's not practical.
You can't cover the screen, I've tried and the covering sets it off and I also have a cat and her laying near it, as cats like to do its the same problem.

I guess I am a bit confused, it sounds like either your PC is setup outdoors or you live in some type of open-air hut, which would beg the question how are you getting electricity there? But seriously, you can get something like this: www.longroad.com...

How would that accidentally activate your machine?

So if I use a 3d modeling app that has nearly 100+ key commands, would a user have to make that many different motions just to use this in current programs? Outside of moving an object around I don't see how this is more intuitive than a mouse and keyboard(except for people who are unfamiliar with such). As far as speech recognition most can type faster than they can talk so it's only practical in certain environments.
It seems cool for home automation or browsing through files etc. Heck I do most things from the command line anyway so this just doesn't seem very useful. It just doesnt seem to be aimed at power users at all.

Thanks for the chuckle!
I live in a house near a river , near lots of trees in canada, so there's lots of insects, spiders of every variety, etc.

Anyways I was mostly saying the touch screen wasn't that great after all. Maybe this one is better
