FreeMo: Extending hand tracking experiences through capture volume and user freedom

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Camera-based hand tracking technologies can enable unprecedented interactive contents with gripping impressions of embodiment and immersion. However, current systems are often restricted by the tracking volume of their sensors which results in limited experiences and content creation possibilities. We present two demonstrations of FreeMo, a hand tracking device that extends the interaction space of a Leap Motion by augmenting it with selfactuating capabilities to chase after the user's palms. By doing so, we can offer content featuring significantly enhanced user freedom and immersion as showcased by our applications: An interactive room-scale VR experience with hand tracking from head to lap, and two-person competitive virtual air hockey game.
