The Leap Motion is a very cool piece of technology. It’s a small $80 box that you can put on your desk to control an ordinary computer using hand motions. It’s extremely accurate, allowing for very fine motor control using all of your fingers. If you haven’t seen it, be sure to check it out. I’m definitely getting in line for one to play with myself.
I have no doubt that there will be many more amazing demos like this as developers get their hands on the Leap Motion, which is slated to ship in May of this year for $80. If you have a great idea, you may even be able to get early developer access by signing up on their site.
