Multi-touch desktop is a (miserably) unsuccessful product due to the fact that hands could get very tired with continued use, but Leap Motion wants to challenge this dark area again with a more advanced idea. It lets you control the desktop with fingers, but without touching the screen.
Imagine if you could do things on your computer just like you do them in real life. If natural movements replaced all those clicks and taps and drags and drops. Imagine if technology finally figured out people, instead of the other way around. That’s how we see the future.
The Leap Motion Control senses your hands and fingers and monitors their every move. It lets them move in all that wide-open space between you and your computer. So you can do almost anything without touching anything. It’s the petite device that just might change the way you use technology. It’s the world’s most natural technology that just might change the world.
It’s not your typical motion sensor, as Leap Motion allows you to scroll the web page, zoom in the map and photos, sign documents and even play a first person shooter game with only hand and finger movements. The smooth reaction is the most crucial key point here. More importantly, you can own this future with just $70.
If this device could completely work with Oculus Rift to simulate a real-time gaming experience, gaming is going to get a major make-over.
