Leap Motion, which allows users to control their computer purely through motion-control, will ship on May 13 for $80. The technology seems like some strange Kinect-like science fiction gimmick but, according to Leap, the technology is accurate up to a hundredth of a millimeter, and 200 times more accurate than anything else on the market.
As you can see in the video, Leap basically requires users to act like an orchestra conductor. We've been slowly assimilating touch and gestures into our lives with the use of smartphones and tablets, and it looks like the next frontier is more motion-based. It looks amazing, but also a bit weird. And fun.
Over the past twelve months, over 12,000 developers have been working to create compatible software with Leap. When it does launch, the Leap device will support Windows 7 and 8, as well as OS X 10.7 and 10.8. Developer support is one huge piece of the puzzle; now all Leap needs is widespread consumer interest.
The device will initially be available in the U.S.—both on Leap's website and at Best Buy retail locations. Leap said it hopes the device will become a "transformative experience" for consumers. From what we've seen, it looks like the company might accomplish that. I can't wait to try it out.
