The Ultraleap Stereo IR 170 is a next-generation hand tracking camera module that captures the movement of users’ hands and fingers so they can interact naturally with digital content. It is designed to be integrated into VR/AR headsets, touchless interactive kiosks, and other enterprise-grade hardware solutions.
Ultraleap’s world-leading hand tracking software is able to discern 27 distinct hand elements, including bones and joints, and track them even when they are obscured by other parts of the hand.
Stereo IR 170 features a wider field of view, a longer tracking range, lower power consumption, and smaller form factor than our Leap Motion Controller.
The Stereo IR 170 Evaluation Kit consists of the Ultraleap Stereo IR 170 camera module in a plastic housing with USB header for plug-and-play evaluation. Unity and Unreal plugins together with our TouchFree application for interactive kiosks, OpenXR API layer and MRTK integration enable easy integration into existing workflows.
Interaction zone: depth of between 10 cm (4”) to 75cm (29.5”) preferred, up to 1 m (39”) maximum; 170×170° typical field of view (160×160° minimum)
Cameras: Stereo infrared operating at 90fps
Operating wavelength: Stereo IR 170 provides its own illumination via two infrared LEDs spaced on either side of the cameras.
Size:1 mm height x 145 mm length x 18.6 mm width
Power supply: 5V DC via USB connector (minimum 0.5A)
Data connection: Micro USB Type-B (2.0 or 3.0) when in plastic housing
Minimum system requirements: Windows® 7+; AMD Phenom™ II or Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 processor; 2 GB RAM; USB 2.0 port. VR headsets may come with their own system requirements. Note: The Stereo IR 170 Evaluation Kit is currently Windows compatible only
TouchFree application: Detects a user’s hand in mid-air and converts it to an on-screen cursor, allowing touchscreen interfaces to be retrofitted with touchless gesture control.
Plugins and integrations: Unity, Unreal, OpenXR, MRTK
