Ann, but they Do say Leap is WAY better than kinect. I suppose that remains to be seen. I agree that it does depend on the project though.

A project starts with whatever technology is available at the time, so if it's the latest and greatest at the time, it's not exactly out of date. As I said, LEAP came out after they'd already started. And obviously, they don't think it's better than Kinect, at least for their project. Lots of people would agree with them: it depends on the project, and is often simply a matter of preference.

Ann next-gen system. Why start a project with out of date equipment. Isn't LEAP supposed to be so much better than the kinect? If they aren't even done with it why use old tech? It'll be out of date before it's launched.

Cadman-LT, the researchers described in that article said their next-gen system would use Kinect. At the time, LEAP either wasn't out yet, or had just been announced.

Ann really? Kinect? Kinect is shotty at best. There are better solutions than Kinect. LEAP if I remember correctly is one.

Jack, do you mean the compression bands worn below the elbow? Yes, they actually work, at least on my mouse-arm.

Is that what those things are for Ann?  I've seen a number of people using those bands, but I could never figure out what they were used for...and didn't want to seem that nosy by asking.  I'll have to keep that in mind.

At CES 2012 and 2013 I saw a log of those reclining chairs with monitors suspended around them. You lay back like a dentist’s operating chair. Is that good? It seems like it take all the strain off the body, while at the same time making it weak. Reminds me of the chair the “genius” programmer from the movie “Grandma’s Boy” sat in. C

Thanks, Cadman-LT. That makes more sense. Regarding the article, the motion-capture tape was used initially for testing the software's accuracy in controlling a virtual robot, as the article states. The next-gen system will use Kinect to control an autonomous robot.

Ann,

 I just saw a hairbrush made in 1 pass by a 3D printer. So multiple materials....just neat.
