Ultraleap’s real world hand tracking and haptics: no controllers, no wearables, no touchscreens

In Eamon’s absence from the ipX studios today – Jake presents a flashback to CES last year when Rhianna interviewed Dr James Wilcox from Ultraleap, whose Stereo IR 170 Camera Module enables 3D hand-gesture recognition with mid-air ‘TouchFree’ haptics.

Such technology is perfect for applications where mid-air gestures are preferred, such as in medical settings, but it can also be used to augment HMIs in automotive, entertainment, and customer-service settings.

To test this technology, Ultraleap provides an evaluation kit that includes the IR 170 camera module mounted in a plastic housing with a USB header for easy plug-and-play evaluation of hand tracking. This device operates on 5 VDC via the USB connector (minimum 0.5 A) with a slightly larger nominal size of 145 x 18.6 x 11.1 mm when compared to the bare board. The provided software, to be hosted on a Windows system at the time of this writing, allows for full testing of Ultraleap’s AR/VR/XR integration capabilities before designing the Stereo IR 170 Camera Module into your end device.
