      Evaluating the Usability of the Leap Motion Controller


      , ,

      Proceedings of the 32nd International BCS Human Computer Interaction Conference (HCI)

      Human Computer Interaction Conference

      4 - 6 July 2018

      Gesture Recognition, Leap Motion Controller, User Interaction, Natural User Interaction



            The Leap Motion Controller (LMC) allows for hand gesture movements to be tracked in order to conduct various tasks in a desktop orientated environment. With the use of gesture recognition and natural user interfaces, it allows for fluent and natural communication, via the use of hand movements. Various topics have been discussed in relation to LMC, many looking at various communication theories and the robustness of the device. This research examined the LMC functions and identified key usability issues related to the application “Form and Function 3D”, providing an adequate solution for usability.
