LEAP: Input Device of the Future
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. There's a promo video showing LEAP in action, and basically it's like Minority Report sans fancy finger LED gloves and precrime. This piece of hardware will set you back $70, which is pretty awesomely reasonable considering the apparent sensitivity of it. If this thing is for real, we can all say goodbye to the myriad of remote controls laying around. Some of you may have already pre-ordered, but call me old-fashioned cause most of the time I like to try things out before buying. In the meantime though, watch the video!
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.
The Leap senses your individual hand and finger movements independently, as well as items like a pen. In fact, it’s 200x more sensitive than existing touch-free products and technologies. It’s the difference between sensing an arm swiping through the air and being able to create a precise digital signature with a fingertip or pen.
What can I do with The Leap?
The possibilities are endless, really. Computer power has grown exponentially over the years, but the way we interact with those computers has not. With LEAP, virtually every kind of application, across every industry, can be re-imagined.
Art. Healthcare. Engineering. Operating Systems. Gaming. If you can imagine it, we’re pretty confident there’s a remarkable member of our developer community who is already working to create it.
What is Leap Motion technology?
Leap Motion technology is a breakthrough in computer interaction, using a patented mathematical approach to 3D, touch-free motion sensing and motion control software that’s unlike anything that currently exists on the market or in academia. Developed over the past 4 years, Leap Motion moves far beyond the current technologies designed for distant arm waving.
How much does The Leap cost?
The Leap will retail for $69.99, and a limited number are currently available for pre-order at LeapMotion.com.
