Dear LW3D Group,

Please give me an animation system that can leverage the leap motion controller. I envision a system that I can control whatever I want; by puppeteering with my arms and fingers (tips attached to whatever null/bone is 'live').

I would love you forever if you did.

I'm holding out for this to be adapted: http://emotiv.com/store/hardware/epoc-bci/epoc-neuroheadset/

Maybe a combination of both!

i wonder if this can one day track finger movements too... possibly... ?

Considering the brain isn't always even involved in high-res motor movements, I'd be quite shocked if that device were capable of adequate capture to do so.

reading more on into BCI, it seems that yes, it would be very difficult with this technology,
morphing hand movements however, could be possible, but maybe not 100% realtime.

so leap motion looks to be much more powerful for this... but it needs some further development >

i had hopes for Myo, but, it turns out >

ThalmicLabs > Not particularly. Myo is able to determine what position your hand and fingers are in based on the hand gesture, but it's not sensitive enough to know the absolute position of the wrist or individual fingers.
