The company Leap Motion has developed a new input peripheral named the Leap. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a small device that sits below your monitor and interprets hand motions as input. It brings back images of Tom Cruise in the movie Minority Report using hand motions to interact with the screen. It also seem very similar to the Microsoft Kinect technology, although they claim it is much more accurate. It looked almost too good to be true, but here’s a very impressive review on Engadget that’s worth watching:
It looks like it has great backwards compatibility with existing operating system functionality and is compatible with both the Windows and OS X. Although it will be very interesting to see what type of new interaction will be developed for it in the future.
