Stereo IR 170 Camera Module Evaluation Kit
- Product ID: 9129
The Ultraleap Stereo IR 170 is a next-generation optical hand tracking 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 enterprise-grade hardware solutions, displays, installations, and virtual/augmented reality headsets for AR/VR/XR prototyping, research, and development

TouchFree is the award-winning software application for interactive screens. Using an Ultraleap hand tracking module, it detects a user’s hand in mid-air and converts it to an on-screen cursor.
The world’s most powerful hand tracking hardware
The Ultraleap Stereo IR 170 camera module uses the same core software as its predecessor, the Leap Motion Controller. Both can discern 27 distinct hand elements, including bones and joints, and track them even when they are obscured by other parts of the hand.
Ultraleap Stereo IR 170 features a wider field of view, a longer tracking range, lower power consumption, and smaller form factor. It’s capable of tracking hands within a 3D interactive zone that extends from 10cm (4”) to 75cm (29.5”) or more, extending from the device in a 170x170° typical field of view (160x160° minimum).

The Stereo IR 170 Evaluation Kit is intended for exploration and development purposes only and is not suitable for incorporation into a product for sale or distribution. For the purpose of the Ultraleap and Leap Motion SDK agreement, the Stereo IR 170 does not constitute a “Leap Motion-authorized embedded optical module”. This kit has been designed for the purpose of enabling the evaluation of Ultraleap hand tracking by professionals at research, design, or development facilities. We recommend to download the latest version of the SDK to optimise the performance of your device. This version of hardware is not tested or certified compliant to CE requirements or equivalent international standards. To protect the evaluation kit please ensure it is always handled with care and is stored appropriately with lens caps attached when not in use. Should the lenses require cleaning, we recommend gentle cleaning using >99% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and a soft lint free cloth. For intended performance, it is important that your Stereo IR 170 Evaluation Kit remains flat. Minimise flexing while mounting the device. Use a stiff, flat, mounting surface or for curved surfaces an alternative solution that provides minimal flexing.
CAUTION! Removing the PCB from the plastic housing will invalidate your warranty. In particular, the USB header (the connection from the USB port to the PCB) is rated for 10 connections only. Removing the PCB from the plastic housing multiple times may cause the USB connection to stop working. If the PCB is outside the plastic housing, it is vulnerable to electrostatic discharge and calibration may also be affected, negatively impacting tracking performance. If you wish to remove the PCB from the plastic housing for evaluation purposes please contact Ultraleap for support.
