Battelle has introduced a new biometric security application that works to verify a user's identity through three-dimensional motion control.
Programmers from Battelle Cyber Innovations built SignWave Unlock to work with the Leap Motion controller and provide users access to a computer after a biometric security check, Battelle said Wednesday.
The app aims to measure geometrical traits of a user's hand to unlock a computer.
Nicholas Vidovich, the software's technical development lead, said SignWave Unlock creates a user biometric profile by determining unique hand characteristics that work to serve as a computer pass.
Leap Motion users move their hands in front of the controller device by pinching or grabbing an object, the nonprofit organization says.
