The Leap technology is 200 times more accurate than anything else on the market

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.





Say goodbye to your mouse and keyboard.

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.

Two or three hundred thousands lines of code later, we’ve figured out how to use the Leap to create an interaction space around your computer, in 3D. Able to distinguish thumbs from fingers, and even handheld items like pencils. This allows users to interact like never before, using only natural movements.
And we went a step further. You will be able to create custom gestures that fit how you want to use your computer. You can even network more than one Leap device, to create even larger interaction areas.
We’ve been able to link Leap to dozens of applications and operating systems.
But this is just the beginning. As our development community builds, who knows what the future holds?

I like, that it seems, that one does not need to be sitting in reach of the screen to use it.

The price is affordable, however I am always a bit wary of products that are promised to be released soon and then turn out to be vaporware.

I'd rather be cautious and wait until a release is made and feedback from users is available than providing credit card details for a pre-order.

:cheers:

Sometimes I find that people are really crazy (or actually do not understand what they write).

Yesterday, technology required the use of some sort of tool to perform an action. We use keyboards and mice to input and control data or kill some bad guy in our favorite video games. But the times they are a-changing, as one rock poet once said.

What exactly is The Leap?

The Leap is a small iPod sized USB peripheral that creates a 3D interaction space of 8 cubic feet to precisely interact with and control software on your laptop or desktop computer. It’s like being able to reach into the computer and pull out information as easily as reaching into a cookie jar.


I see very litlle difference between a "USB peripheral" and a "USB keyboard" or a "USB mouse", and tjhe Leap does seem like "some sort of tool".

I guess we may call it "contact-less sort of USB tool" :whistling:

BUT, (if it works and will actually be available) it does look like a winner! :thumbsup:
