This video shows our application to controll a PowerPoint presentation with the Leap Motion Controler. It is a small part of our Motion Sense Suite, developed by students of the VRlab Reutlingen project.
“Motion Sense” is the name of a project, startet in the summer semester 2013 by Arkadius Weister and Stanislas Mauser. In this project we develop a application suite with C#, called “Motion Sense Suite”.
Our application suite use multiple tracking devices as input (Microsoft Kinect, Asus Xtion and the Leap Motion). Based on the conditions and limitations of the devices, we implemented different gestures approaches, to do the same job in multiple ways.
One goal is to compare the efficiency of the different ways, interacting touchless with applications in comparison with the different devices.

The following list represents my favorite extensions (free) for Visual Studio 2012.
If you are developing with the Leap Motion and get the exception: “The type initializer for ‘Leap.LeapPINVOKE’ threw an exception.”, than you
- … have not added all *.dll files from the “/LeapSDK/lib/[x86 or x64]/” directory to the debug folder of your C# project
- … have added the wrong .dll files. For Example: If you have copied all the x64 dll files, but Visual Studio compiles the project in the x86 architecture, you also get this exception.
The solution is to simply copy all these *.dll files to “…/<YourProject>/bin/Debug/” resp. to change the x64 dll files with the x86 dll files (or vice versa).
Is the productive use of controlling applications via Hand gestures already suitable? A practical comparison of the possible productive usage of the Microsoft Kinect in contrast to the newer Asus Xtion Pro. Our Use Case is to control applications with up to five fingers and gestures known from devices like the iPad, but without touching anything.
In this Masterproject, Arkadius Weister and Stanislas Mauser work on an application, based on our first test run “the FacePuzzle version 2 application“, that use Motion Sensing devices to control other applications like a tomography visualizer or a simple image viewer application. The core idea is to translate the gestures to ordinary Multi-Touch gestures and works like a layer over the third party application.
In this Project we want to analyze, whether the available technical Hardware is already suitable for productive working. Therefore we develop an own software solution, written in C# under usage of the OpenNI SDK. We use especially the OpenNI SDK to be able to use the Kinect and the Xtion with the same application.
Moreover for this evaluation question we compare multiple Motion Sense devices. Our primary focus is on the Microsoft Kinect and the Asus Xtion Pro, but beyond these two devices we added the new Leap controller to our project scope. By adding the Leap device to our scope, we are able to compare two variations of the PrimeSense technology, with just different technical specifications and a totally other implementation of recording gestures.
Remark: The Xtion Pro camera is faster than the Kinect and has a higher resolution. But both have the PrimeSense technology inside. At this time, we don´t know how the Leap device technically is implemented.
So the Hope is, to give any answer to the question: We need better hardware of PrimeSense devices? We need totally other devices like the Leap? Or a good software implementation with our availably hardware is already sufficiently?
On These questions and more we two want to move on the next few months!
The new Leap controller is arrived. Now I can extend my University project to program the application for tree and now just for two devices

Here I have some pictures from our day-trip to Austria on the Diedamskopf for boarding. The piste was fine and the waethe to the end if the day, too. At the morning it was very foggy, but around the sun appeared slowly, and it was continuously better
All in all it was a wonderful day…
