BODY AND HANDS ACTIVITY TRACKING

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.
