Leap Motion working in Blend4Web
The collection of Blend4Web-friendly hardware was extended by Leap Motion, a fancy yet inexpensive device which can track hand movement and recognize gestures.
For now we supported finger movement recognition, picking objects, pressing a button with a finger and zooming the scene with fists. The virtual hands can be modelled in Blender to your liking and consist either of separate objects or a single skinned model with armature bones – you can select either of them in the demo. Hands can also be equipped with a physics rig to realistically interact with scene objects.
Leap Motion can work in conjunction with virtual reality headsets which are already fully supported in Blend4Web, thus opening the way to various potential applications, especially in training and education areas.
