The leap keywords can be truncated to unique strings:


Noise. Diverse types of noise and jitter interfere with motion control.

Lack of sensitivity settings. Currently, the sensitivity of the device (the relative scale of finger/hand motion and model motion in Chimera) cannot be controlled via the leap command.

Velocity mode not very intuitive. The velocity mode may be difficult to use effectively.
