The North Star headset is a wonderful augmented reality platform with superb field-of-view, refresh rate, and resolution that offers wearers and immersive augmented reality experience. Leap Motion has shared a video that shows how amazing ping pong looks on it.
For the demo, a handheld paddle controller is combined with Leap Motion hand tracking. Users will be able to play against an AI opponent or simply get some practice. As the developers explain:
the AI paddle uses the same action/reaction logic to calculate the reflected trajectory of the ball as your paddle. In other words, its motions must to be physically correct to play the game. To this end, we implemented a kinematic formulation of the Cubic Bezier Curve to naturally drive the AI’s paddle to the correct position and velocity at the correct time.
