LeapMotion Hands in Slicer

Key Investigators

Project Description

Module to integrate hand models into Slicer that are paired with tracking from LeapMotion


  1. Stream data from leap motion into Slicer
  2. Pair tracking with models to represent hands
  3. Make hands user specfic through scaling models accordingly and allow user input

Approach and Plan

  1. Use PlusServer to stream data into 3D Slicer
  2. Pair cylinder and sphere models with tracking information
  3. Make module adpatable to width and length of digits

Progress and Next Steps

  1. Transforms representing joints are streamed into 3D Slicer
  2. On connecting sphere models are generated and paired with appropriate transforms

Future work:

  1. Positions cylinders according to joints
  2. Stream in finger dimensions and have model sizes adapt to user
  3. Check update rate when calibrated into the VIVE
