A tiny device with huge possibilities.
The device is sleek, light, and tiny – just three inches long. It takes up hardly any space on your desk. The wide 150 degree field of view gives you eight cubic feet of interactive, three-dimensional space.
That wide-open space between you and your computer is now yours – to play, create and explore. Reach into another world without actually touching anything.
Airspace. The first-ever place for first-ever apps.
The Airspace app store offers a whole new world of apps – many are designed specifically for Leap Motion technology. You’ll find apps in all kinds of categories: Games, Music, Design, Photography, and more.
PLAY – Get way, way, more into the game. Steer, slice, grab, push, crush, and shoot using your hands or finger with games like Fruit Ninja, or new titles including Stan Lee’s Verticus. CREATE – With the Leap Motion Controller, you’re the instrument. Strum, drum, sketch, draw, paint and sculpt with your fingers, or even pencils, paintbrushes, or drumsticks with apps such as Decosketch or AirBeats. EXPLORE – Reach for the stars. Grab a planet while you’re at it. Move up, down, left, right, forward and back in Google Earth. Flip through a recipe for lasagna without saucing up your screen. Fly through space in Exoplanet, or even take apart a skull in Cyber Science. When you reach into your computer, the learning never stops.
HID lights have a glass chamber of gas, replacing the filament of traditional halogen bulbs. The gas is ignited by a 23,000v charge and stays illuminated by a constant 12v source provided by a ballast which is connected directly to your battery.
Remarkably, HID lights are able to provide greater light output with much less power consumption. Studies show that a 35w HID lamp produces 3 times as much light than a 55w halogen bulb. Also, a halogen bulb uses a continuous power draw of 10-15 amps, while the HID system uses 20 amps for ignition, but then drops to a mere 3 amps during operation (i.e. up to 80% less power during use!).
In addition, the HID headlamp provides longer service life. With no filament to vibrate and fatigue, under normal conditions HID bulbs last roughly 10 times longer than halogen bulbs.
Color temperature is a characteristic of light that is sometimes mistaken as brightness, when it is more closely related to “cool” and “warm” tones of light. Color temperature is a measure in Degrees Kelvin of the hue of a light source, in this case the HID bulb. (The term color temperature actually refers to the color associated with the amount of heat needed to produce that color from an ideal black body.)
It is hard to describe HID colors accurately since many variables such as voltage, type of ballast and the environment can affect color output. Also, color perception is subjective. That said, here is a forex friberg rough guide to Color Temperatures for HID bulbs:
