Unique Features

While Ultraleap Hyperion unlocks new hand tracking capabilities it also gives direct access to the Leap Motion Controller 2 stereo IR camera hardware, expanding its use to other computer vision tasks, like depth sensing or 3D scanning.

AR Marker Tracking

Use the Leap Motion Controller 2 camera to track different sized AR Markers (also known as fiducial markers) to deliver tracking events and coordinates back to an application.

Tracking Model for Microgestures

A specific model that is trained to improve finger tracking accuracy making it possible to track very fine or subtle finger movements.

Tracking Model for Hands Handling Objects

A model that is trained to provide robust tracking when objects are being held in a users hand.

Direct Camera Access

APIs that enable developers to unlock the Leap Motion Controller 2 camera to be used for computer vision use cases.

Low Power Mode

A mode which enables hand tracking to run with reduced power consumption, without compromising on performance.

High Performance Mode

A mode that delivers increased robustness and accurate mapping of individual finger positions with low latency when computer processing power is unlimited.

UI Input Mode

A mode that enables developers to optimize hand tracking to improve the overall stability of UI interaction, especially useful when the user’s arms are fully extended.

Hinting API

An API that enables developers to switch between available models and modes according to application context.

Expanded Android Support

Support for tracking on Android 10+ unlocks a wider range of XR headsets as well as mobile devices and tablets.
