Leap Motion Update!

Leap Motion Update!

All, Gadgets

Posted on Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

I’ve covered the incredibly accurate Leap Motion finger tracking system previously but I’ve just discovered their first promotional video. It gives you a really great overview of what the Leap Motion is capable of.

Uses include: map navigation, web surfing, hand writing, gaming, finger tracking and more. Though to be honest when I buy one I imagine I’ll only really use it to navigate webpages while sitting on the sofa or for watching movies (no more mouse/keyboard, Woohoo). You still need to wait though, the Leap Motion is still in the pre-order stage, with no reviews forthcoming so I would wait for some before purchasing.

The official website has also been updated, check it out: www.leapmotion.com.

And for an official description of the Leap Motion, here’s what the developers have to say:

Leap represents an entirely new way to interact with your computers. It’s more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen.  For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.

This isn’t a game system that roughly maps your hand movements.  The Leap technology is 200 times more accurate than anything else on the market — at any price point. Just about the size of a flash drive, the Leap can distinguish your individual fingers and track your movements down to a 1/100th of a millimeter.

This is like day one of the mouse.  Except, no one needs an instruction manual for their hands.
