Leap Motion Orion
Reach into the future with Orion, Leap Motion’s new hand tracking software that’s built from the ground up for virtual reality.
Leap Motion Orion is built from the ground up for virtual reality, Leap Motion Orion is a massive step forward for our technology’s capabilities – lower latency, longer range, better and faster hand recognition, vastly improved robustness to cluttered backgrounds and ambient light, and more.
Orion, which is fundamentally different than anything Leap Motion’s released before. It’s part hardware, part software, built from the ground up to tackle the unique challenges of hand tracking for VR. It comes with a huge increase in the general capabilities of our tracking technology and a profound shift in the reliability guarantees of markerless motion tracking systems.
Orion software represents a radical shift in how Leap Motion does hand tracking. They’ve unlocked lower latency. Longer range. Better and faster hand recognition. Vastly improved robustness to cluttered backgrounds and ambient light. Even applications will be faster thanks to a new API that can be used initially in Unity.
Because the shift is so stark, Leap Motion is making the software available for Windows on the Leap Motion Controller. The beta preview comes with new demos like Blocks. Built on our upcoming interaction engine, Blocks shows how we can recreate nuanced physical interactions with digital objects in a way never before possible.
The Orion beta is just a first taste of what Leap Motion has on the horizon, because they working directly with OEMs to embed Orion hardware into VR headsets. Truly immersive VR starts with your hands.
