In Detail

Leap Motion is a company developing advanced motion sensing technology for human-computer interaction. Originally inspired by the level of difficulty of using a mouse and keyboard for 3D modeling, Leap Motion believe that moulding virtual clay should be as easy as moulding clay in your hands. Leap Motion now focus on bringing this motion sensing technology closer to the real world.

Leap Motion Development Essentials explains the concepts and practical applications of gesture input for developers who want to take full advantage of Leap Motion technology. This guide explores the capabilities available to developers and gives you a clear overview of topics related to gesture input along with usable code samples.

Leap Motion Development Essentials shows you everything you need to know about the Leap Motion SDK, from creating a working program with gesture input to more sophisticated applications covering a range of relevant topics. Sample code is provided and explained along with details of the most important and central API concepts.

This book teaches you the essential information you need to design a gesture-enabled interface for your application, from specific gesture detection to best practices for this new input. You will be given guidance on practical considerations along with copious runnable demonstrations of API usage which are explained in step-by-step, reusable recipes.

Maximum Apache Security (Maximum Security)
Maximum Apache Security (Maximum Security)
The Maximum Security series, which debuted in 1997, has thus far enjoyed relative success. I use the term “relative success,” because security title sales have historically trickled, rather than gushed. For altering this and fostering a new market, Sams editors deserve kudos. Their insights have proven providential: Today, Maximum...

An Optimized Translation Process and Its Application to ALGOL 68 (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
In the late sixties, the definition of ALGOL 68 I 11 , for a long time called ALGOL X, reached some stability. It is at that period (1967) our team started the project of writing a compiler for that language. We had two goals in mind : (I) to make significant research in the field of compiler methodology, (2) to point out the special difficulties...
