Hand Gesture Input Interface of IntelligentBox Using Leap Motion Controller and Its Application Example

Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS,volume 346)

Abstract

In this paper, the authors introduce hand gesture input interface of IntelligentBox and show its application example. IntelligentBox is a component-based constructive 3D graphics software development system. One of its application fields is VR (Virtual Reality). VR applications should support various types of VR peripherals, e.g., HMD (Head Mounted Display), data-gloves and so on. IntelligetBox supports most of them with its dedicated software components. As a hand gesture input interface, IntelligentBox supports data gloves. However, Leap Motion Controller is more portable than data-gloves because data-gloves request the user to wear them on his/her hands although Leap Motion controller does not so. Therefore, the authors added new functionality to support Leap Motion Controller for the hand gesture input interface of InelligentBox. In this paper, the authors show an animation system using Leap Motion Controller as one of the applications developed using IntelligentBox.
