From Visitor Marcello Bonfe’ – LIRALab UniFE
thank you for your submitted post! 🙂
This video shows a demo developed by the LIRALab of the University of Ferrara (Italy), in which a Puma 260 robot, with retrofitted control hardware based on EtherCAT drives and control software based on Orocos (http://www.orocos.org), is teleperated using a Leap Motion:
Diplopia is a virtual reality game designed by James Blaha to help amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eye) using the Oculus Rift and Leap Motion controller. James put up his game on indiegogo.com crowdfunding platform and got over 20.000 Dollars funded – congratulations! I really like the social idea behind his work. Check out his project and preorder the game.
Demonstration of using feed and LEAP Motion by Tau Manifesto. This could be a useful way to interact with a computer for people with disabilities. Another proof for that the LEAP that it is much more than a toy (we already knew this) which could also have some serious improvements for daily life. GameWave App and Leap make it easy.
As Tao Manifesto states at his Youtube Video:
This solution has the potential to give an even greater degree of freedom to those who have disabilities
