Leap Motion has created a new device, called the Leap, it claims is 200 times more accurate than existing technology.
It's about the size of a pack of gum, and once connected to your computer via USB, it creates a four-cubic-foot virtual workspace. Within that area, it tracks all ten of your fingers simultaneously to within 1/100 of a millimeter -- that level of accuracy allows for rudimentary gestures like pinch-to-zoom and more complex actions like manipulating 3D-rendered objects. Leap Motion claims that its software can be embedded in almost anything with an onboard computer, from phones to refrigerators.
Leap brings you this next-gen UX for a mere $69.99, and a select few can pre-order them now, with the full roll-out coming this winter
Wonderful or just another gimmick for gamers?
Personally I like the idea but dont know how games can be played one is sitting on the computer.
