It is based on the latest motion sensing technology called the Leap Motion Controller, which can sense, process and respond to a huge variety of finger/hand gestures
The event is all about solving a Ball Maze using the Leap Motion device.
It’s a single player game.
The player will be controlling the maze disc angle (pitch and ROLL) by palm gestures to get the 2 balls from periphery to center of the disc.
Attractive goodies to be won.
Please post your queries related to this event at http://discuss.pragyan.org/t/leap-action-event/42
The time taken by the participant to solve ( i.e. to bring both balls at the center of the maze) the maze will be considered..
Every 3 hours , we will announce the name of the person who took the LEAST time to solve the maze. And give out exciting goodies !
Timings : Stall will be put up on all days of Pragyan’15. From 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
The participant is not allowed to use 2 hands to solve the maze at any cost.
Once played, next attempt can be made only after the present 3 hour round gets over.
Touching the maze, or the Leap , will lead to disqualification.
1. Why prefer the Leap Motion over other motion sensing technologies ?
Ans: Well, Leap is precise,compact and very responsive to gestures compared to Kinect or other competitors.
2. Can we know how you are talking to the Leap Motion Controller?
Ans: Its all about the magic of Python. Leap library of Python is used to serially receive data and carried over to the Arduino via the COM port
3. Can we know how to exploit this technology for projects from you?
Ans: Yes,absolutely.We welcome you to ask us more and more about the scope of this device. Get the best ideas of using the Leap in your projects from us!
4.Is there any qualifying criteria ?
Ans: Nope.Its an informal event. Come, try out the maze and win !
