Qualcomm Technologies and Leap Motion Introduce the First Pairing of a Natural Virtual Reality Interface on the Qualcomm™ Snapdragon® 835 Mobile Platform

Qualcomm Incorporated announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., in conjunction with Leap Motion, Inc. introduced the first pairing of a natural virtual reality interface on the Qualcomm™ Snapdragon® 835 mobile platform. For the VR enthusiast, this demonstration of Qualcomm Technologies' positional tracking with Leap Motion hand tracking is engineered to offer immersive presence in the virtual world and the power to transform that world with one's bare hands. For the broader VR ecosystem, this relationship ushers in the future of natural human computer interaction for mobile standalone HMDs, and sets a new standard for mobile VR content development. In order for virtual reality to become ubiquitous, it must deliver on the promise of simulating physical presence in real or imagined worlds. This degree of immersion in VR is only possible when virtual visuals, interactions, and sounds become sufficiently close to its real world experiences. The combination of the Snapdragon 835 mobile platform and Leap Motion's cutting-edge hand tracking technology, which renders the precise movement of hands and fingers with very low latency, is designed to allow developers to tap into an incredible software and hardware ecosystem.
