We’re just getting started. The Leap Motion Controller is the beginning, but there’s a lot more stuff on the way. We’re already working to extend 3D motion control into many other digital devices, and embed our technology in products from the ground up.
Every tablet and phone out there has its own dock, stand, and range of accessories.
In the UR-103T, the titanium cross has been replaced by a completely redesigned structure in ARCAP, a very stable copper/nickel alloy. The dark ARCAP wraps around the hour satellites in sapphire. This new configuration ensures that the numbers on the hour satellites can only be seen when they are required to tell the time while passing the arc of the minutes. The actual mechanism for rotating the satellites has been completely modified on the UR-103T. With this model the satellites rotate simultaneously behind the scenes in multiple stages, in preparation for their turn to indicate the time.
The Research Department at Japan’s Ministry of Defence has this week unveiled their new creation which is apparently the the world’s first spherical flying machine, and immediately reminded me of the flying ball drone from Star Wars. The flying ball drone has been designed to hover like a helicopter, and take-off and land vertically from any terrain. The benefit of the ball shape allows the craft to fly forward at high speed using wings, which a helicopter can’t do. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action and its features explained. “Because the exterior is round, this machine can land in all kinds of attitudes, and move along the ground.
