HIT centre is equipped with several motion sensing input devices (e.g. Kinect One, 360, and leap motion). These tools can be utilized in order to control and interact with consoles/computers without the need for a game controller that is by means of body and hands gestures. One of the principal methods by which body or hands movements can be electronically monitored, in a context of human-computer interaction, is the optical detection. The above-mentioned devices exploit the infrared light for recording users’ movements (i.e. motion capture process). 

The lab is equipped with two types of motion sensing input devices: the Kinect for Xbox 360 and the Kinect for Xbox One (by Microsoft). The Kinect is a natural user interface device that used an infrared array and can be utilized to detect the presence and motions of people moving in a predefined space.
The Leap Motion controller is a small USB peripheral device which is designed to be placed on a physical desktop, facing upward. It can also be mounted onto a virtual reality headset. Using two monochromatic IR cameras and three infrared LEDs, the device observes a roughly hemispherical area. The LEDs generate pattern-less IR light and the cameras generate almost 200 frames/sec. of reflected data. This can be then analyzed by computer by the LM software using "complex maths".
The 5DT Data Glove 5 Ultra is designed to satisfy the stringent requirements of modern Motion Capture and Animation Professionals. It offers comfort, ease of use, a small form factor.
